WARSAW - A huge unexploded Nazi bomb was found beneath the streets of central Warsaw on Tuesday, forcing the evacuation of 3,000 people from surrounding buildings and bringing traffic to a standstill.

The 1.5-tonne World War Two mortar bomb was discovered by underground construction workers in Poland's capital and later safely removed by bomb disposal experts. The evacuated buildings had included the country's central bank.

Warsaw was almost totally destroyed by the Nazis and unexploded bombs are found from time to time at construction sites in the center of the city.
