Experts defuse World War II bomb found in southeastern France

About 200 residents of a village in southeastern France were evacuated from their homes Sunday as experts defused an unexploded U.S. bomb from World War II, local officials said.

Police also closed off highways Sunday morning around Ternay, in the Rhone region, where the bomb was successfully defused, the AP reported.

Wartime bombs and other unexploded munitions are still uncovered regularly in France.
