Bomb find in Oberhausen: A 20-hundredweight dud has to be blown up. This has major implications for many residents and traffic.
Oberhausen/Duisburg – Many people in Oberhausen and Duisburg have to be prepared for some restrictions on Thursday (October 13). An aircraft bomb from the Second World War is then to be blown up because bomb disposal is no longer possible. This affects more than 20,000 residents in the two NRW cities, some of which have to be evacuated. Public transport, Deutsche Bahn trains and the A3 motorway are also affected by the blast.
