Unexploded bomb from WWII removed from Polish city

Thousands of people were evacuated from buildings in Wroclaw on Thursday as experts removed an unexploded World War II bomb from a building site. Technicians in yellow vests used a crane to lift the bomb onto a truck, as part of its removal from the center of Wroclaw, a western Polish city that was the German city of Breslau until the borders were shifted after the war's end. Police spokesman Wojciech Wybraniec told the news agency PAP that the bomb weighed 500 kilograms (1,100 pounds).
