Berlin: Mission canceled: Suspicious find was not a bomb

A deployment of the explosive ordnance clearance service originally planned for Saturday because of an alleged World War II bomb in Berlin-Adlershof has been canceled by the police. Contrary to what was previously suspected, the suspicious object was not a World War II bomb, as the Berlin police announced on Twitter on Friday evening. This was determined by a special company with the support of police divers. The operation planned for Saturday will not take place, the residents do not have to prepare for an evacuation, it said.

On Wednesday, according to the police, an object was discovered underground on a former industrial site on Glienicker Weg using electromagnetic probing, which the investigators initially thought was a World War II bomb. However, since it still had to be uncovered, it was not until Saturday morning that a decision was to be made as to whether the alleged bomb should be detonated or defused and whether evacuations within a 500-metre exclusion zone would be necessary.
