British Bomb Explodes in Bavaria

Whilst I was on retreat, my German friend, Jan, sent me an e-mail about a story that dominanted German news last week. One of 'our' WWII bombs expoded next to the motorway between Frankfurt and Nuremberg during road works, tragically killing one worker. What makes it so alarming is that the 250kg bomb wasn't detected when the motorway was built in the 1950s and, since then, millions have driven along unaware of the danger. As we wear our poppys in preparation for Remembrance Sunday, this story reminds us of the ever-present scars of war.
