Three Killed Attempting to Disarm World War II Bomb

According to local police in Germany, three experts working to defuse a bomb dating back to World War II were killed when the device exploded, injuring six others.

From MSNBC:

Some 7,000 residents from around the area in the central German town of Goettingen, where the 1100-pound (500-kilogram) heavy bomb was found, were still being evacuated when it detonated late Tuesday.

Construction workers had found the 65-year-old explosive device about seven yards (meters) below the ground on an empty where the city is currently building a sport arena.
