2.000 kg bomb in Koblenz

On 20.05.1999 a huge British bomb from WW2 was found at the university of Koblenz during excavations for a new building.

On 24.05. the almost 2.000 kg heavy explosive ordnance was defused. An area of 1,8 km around the place of the bomb was evacuated (including two hospitals) - about 15.000 "Kowelenzer" (nickname for the people in Koblenz) had to leave this safety area for four hours.
