Unexploded WWII bomb revealed in drought-hit Italian river

BBC, 09 Aug 2022
An unexploded World War Two bomb submerged in an Italian river has been revealed due to an extreme drought.

The 450kg (1,000lb) bomb was found by fishermen on the banks of the depleted River Po.

Large sections of the 650km (400 mile) river have dried up in Italy's worst drought for 70 years.

Some 3,000 residents near the Lombardy village of Borgo Virgilio were reportedly evacuated so bomb disposal experts could safely carry out a controlled explosion on Sunday.
