Soviet bomb from World War II Found in Berlin

Construction workers unearthed a 1,000-kilo Soviet bomb from World War II in a Berlin suburb, forcing authorities to evacuate more than 4,000 people before defusing it, police say.
The bomb, which was buried about four metres underground, was found in the Lichterfelde district, on the capital's southern edge.
About eight hours later, specialists defused it, removing two detonators.
People in the area were evacuated from their homes as a precaution, police spokeswoman Miriam Tauchmann said.
Services on a nearby commuter train line also were disrupted for several hours.
Unexploded bombs, relics of Allied bombardments before Nazi Germany's surrender in May 1945, are still found regularly in the country.
