Berlin - An unexploded World War II bomb has been discovered near Berlin's main railway station disrupting the morning commute to work for thousands of workers. Roads are closed and there are long delays on main railway lines.
"The bomb was found yesterday afternoon on property belonging to the rail company," a police spokesman told the AFP. He explained that the bomb was dropped by the Allies during WWII.
BBC News reports that specialists have been called in to decide whether to disarm or remove the 220 lb bomb.
According to Dw.Dw, a police spokesman warned that "passengers should be prepared for delays and detours for long distances." Road traffic could also be affected. The area where the bomb was found, in Heidestrasse, was sealed off Tuesday.
There is estimated to be thousands of unexploded bombs throughout Germany, BBC News reports. In 2010, three people were killed when a bomb unexpectedly detonated.
