Old bomb in Japan - level 3
An unexploded bomb from World War Two was found at a large construction site next to a busy train station in Japan on Tuesday. Japan's ground self-defence force bought in massive sandbags for what was reported to be a 40 centimetre long shell possibly from an Imperial Army anti-aircraft gun.
The bomb was walled in with over 3 meters of sand-bags whilst it was detonated, with the local shopping centre and train station evacuated and train lines closed. The explosion could be heard across the city.
Interesting words: shell (big grenade), walled in (being surrounded with walls).
