Frankfurt to evacuate thousands as huge WWII bomb defused

Frankfurt to evacuate thousands as huge WWII bomb defusedFrankfurt city officials have warned that Germany’s financial capital could grind to a halt on Monday if residents don’t heed orders to vacate their homes to allow the defusing of a massive World War Two bomb. On Sunday, the city will evacuate some 60,000 people in the nation’s biggest such maneuver since the war while officials disarm the British bomb discovered on a building site this week in Frankfurt’s leafy Westend, where many wealthy bankers live. Fire and police chiefs, at a hastily called press conference on Friday, said they would use force and incarceration if necessary to clear the area of residents.
