  • Suspected WWII bomb blast causes crater in German field

Police said Monday that the crater was discovered on Sunday afternoon near Limburg and there was no indication it was caused by farm machinery or other tools.

Residents reported having heard a loud explosion and felt a blast at 3:52 am on Sunday.

A huge crater in the middle of a cornfield in rural Germany is believed to have been made by a buried World War II bomb.

A bomb disposal service spokesman said it was "highly possible" that a WWII ordnance was involved.

"With the former railway depot, we were quite a bomb target at the end of the Second World War", city spokesman Johannes Laubach told the German news website Hessenschau.

In September, a 3,000-pound bomb discovered in Frankfurt caused almost 60,000 people to be evacuated while experts defused it.

According to experts, 10 percent of the millions of bombs dropped on Germany during the conflict did not explode.
