Police evacuated around 400 people from their homes in the village of Dolní Lutyně in Silesia on Saturday afternoon after a digger driver discovered an unexploded bomb that was dropped by a plane during WWII. The bomb, which weighed 100kg, was buried two metres under the earth. The local major said it had likely been there since an Allied air raid on the nearby Bohumín in September 1944.
