Live WWII bomb neutralized in France

Construction work in the south of France unearthed a live WWII bomb, forcing the evacuation of 1,500 residents in the area.

The bomb was discovered by builders working on a retirement home construction site, The Riviera Times reported. The bomb, wrapped with a cable and pillows to absorb any potential shock, was gently lifted for fear that it might explode.

Neutralizing the bomb took 40 minutes.
