Japanese airport reopens after WWII bomb found

TOKYO -- A major airport in northern Japan reopened Wednesday after bomb squads barricaded the area around an unexploded bomb from World War II.

Flights resumed at Sendai Airport after military troops worked through the night to pile sandbags around the 250-kilogram (550-pound) bomb, which was uncovered during construction near a runway two days earlier.

The airport, a regional hub for northeastern Japan, was closed all day Tuesday, with 92 flights cancelled.
