"Bomb experts in the German city of Koblenz are working out how to defuse a massive World War II-era bomb that surfaced in the Rhine River due to low water levels. Almost half of all the residents in the western city -- about 45,000 residents -- will be evacuated from their homes while the bomb is made safe Sunday, Der Spiegel reported. Two hospitals, seven retirement homes and a local jail will also be emptied. The bomb measures 10 feet long and weighs 1.8 tons." (121/01/11)
