Explosives experts in Germany detonated the remains of a 550-pound (250 kilogrammes) World War II bomb in central Munich on Tuesday evening.
Burning debris caused fires in several nearby buildings that had been evacuated after the bomb was discovered on Monday in the Schwabing district. More than 3-thousand residents were evacuated.
Tens of thousands of unexploded bombs are believed still to be lying in the ground across Germany.
