WWII bomb removed from airport in Japan

Published: 11.14.12, 08:20 / Israel News

A military squad has safely removed a 550 pound (250-kilogram) World War II bomb found two weeks ago near the runway of a major airport in northern Japan. The team defused the rusty bomb Wednesday and then transported it away from Sendai Airport. More than 30 flights were canceled while they worked.


Sendai Airport was heavily damaged by last year's tsunami and the bomb was uncovered in construction related to its restoration. (AP)
