Unexploded WWII bomb closes Berlin Jewish Museum

Berlin’s Jewish Museum was closed for a day after the discovery of an unexploded bomb from World War II.

Some 11,000 people also were evacuated from their homes near the museum as specialists worked Sunday to defuse the 550-pound American bomb, the German daily Tagesspiegel reported. The efforts were completed at 9 p.m.

The bomb was discovered Friday at a nearby construction site.
