A World War Two bomb has been defused in Berlin after it was discovered in an area near to a train station earlier this week.
The unexploded WW2 bomb was found late on Tuesday, 2nd April, 2013, reportedly in the Heidestrasse area of the city. It was defused by experts safely, although the finding did have an impact on travel.
In particular rail commuters were affected by the discovery, as many faced delays or even having their trains cancelled as a result. This is because the bomb, believed to have been a Soviet bomb, showed up in an area near the station.
It is understood the streets near to the location of the bomb were shut, and also that residents were evacuated from the area.
Berlin is the capital city of Germany, and many people often refer to the Berlin Wall when talking of the country. This came about following World War Two, as Berlin was split into East and West Berlin.
World War Two, which began in 1939, ended in 1945. As a result of global struggle, two main groups seemed to form called the Allies and the Axis.
