YahooNews: Hungarian police evacuated 1000s of people in Budapest on Tuesday where experts prepared to defuse a huge World War Two bomb found on a construction site. The 2-ton bomb is one of the biggest found in the Hungarian capital, which was heavily bombed by the Allies during WW2. Earlier this month another part of Budapest was evacuated after a 1/2-ton bomb was discovered.
"It was found after a mill was demolished in which people had worked for decades without knowing what was down there," he told Reuters. He said defusing it might take well into the night because it is embedded in concrete in a deep hole.
