WWII Bomb Closes Harbor





Officials say Hamburg harbor was closed for several hours after workers doing dredging work unearthed a World War II bomb from the bed of the Elbe river.

Fire department officials say the 500-pound British bomb was found during work Wednesday morning.

World War II-era bombs are still found regularly in Germany, even more than 60 years after the end of the war.
