WWII bomb disrupts commute at main Berlin station

Help

Trains are being stopped or diverted in Berlin after the discovery of an unexploded World War II bomb near the city's main railway station, affecting thousands of commuters.

The area around the 100kg (220-pound) bomb, found on a building site, has been cordoned off.

The disruption affects north-south rail traffic, but not the city's underground trains, German media report.
