WWII bomb discovery forces evacuation of Italian town”

According to the SkyTG24 news channel, the explosive had a delayed fuse that was accidentally set off during the building works, meaning that it could have exploded within 144 hours of its discovery.

Some 23,000 people in Fano were evacuated Tuesday night as a precaution while the bomb was transported to sea.

People and buildings within a radius of 1.8km of the device were evacuated. During the overnight operation, railway and air traffic were suspended around the city, with the airport and sea port closed.

A statement from the town hall said army and navy experts had lifted the bomb and dropped it into the ocean in "a special and highly risky operation".

Schools were ordered to remain shut on Wednesday.

Public offices would remain closed until 13:00 (12:00 GMT) but residents were told they could start returning to their homes. The evacuation order had initially been in place until 1pm on Wednesday. The bomb was taken out 2 miles to sea and will be disposed of in a controlled explosion, local sources said.
