Serbian construction workers were digging when they found something shocking. It was an unexploded bomb from World War II.

The bomb was buried six meters underground. Experts say that the one-ton bomb was made in Germany. It contains 620 kilograms of explosives.

Local residents were evacuated from the area and the bomb was transferred to a military base where the bomb will be destroyed safely.

Difficult words: dig (move earth), resident (person who lives somewhere), transfer (move).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
