Emergencies: World War II bomb in Dresden is to be defused at noon

In Dresden, experts are preparing to defuse a World War II bomb. "Police officers are currently going door to door and making sure that everyone in the restricted area has left their homes," said a police spokesman on request on Thursday morning. About 3,300 people were affected. The exhibition hall is available as emergency accommodation.

The 250-kilogram bomb from World War II was discovered on Wednesday during construction work in Dresden. It is to be defused on Thursday afternoon. "Since the detonator is severely deformed, it is not an everyday use," emphasized the police spokesman. The ordnance experts want to remove the live detonator with a special machine.

The location of the bomb on Friedrichstrasse is in a residential area and close to a large hospital. However, the Friedrichstadt clinic should not be evacuated during the bomb disposal. Patients would be moved to secure parts of the building within the hospital.
