Over 200 people evacuated as as HK blows up wartime bomb

HONG KONG -- More than 200 people were evacuated and a section of busy highway closed off when an undetonated World War II bomb was found in Hong Kong Tuesday.

It was dug up by workers at a construction site near the city's Island Eastern Corridor highway, a police spokesman said.

The road was sealed off and residents in a nearby high-rise block evacuated as bomb disposal experts were called to the scene.

The device, which had a diameter of 15 centimeters, was blown up in a controlled explosion.

Undetonated bombs from World War II turn up periodically across the city.
