WWII bomb made safe in Eindhoven

Some 90 homes and an old people’s complex in Eindhoven were evacuated on Wednesday morning and a local primary school was closed while an old bomb from the WWII was made safe, reports ANP.

The 500 pound explosive was discovered last week and is due to be de-activated by the explosives commando team later this morning.
