A constant worry of places that were war zones at one point in time is the residual for the battle on the mind, body, and the land.

 reported:

An unexploded World War II bomb has been discovered in the immediate vicinity of Borussia Dortmund’s stadium and authorities have evacuated the area.

Because the stadium was also inside the evacuated area, the club relocated the news conference of coach Juergen Klopp ahead of the Ruhr Derby against Schalke to another facility.

Dortmund authorities say the 250-kilogram (550-pound) bomb was British and would be disarmed later Thursday. It was discovered on a building site next to the stadium.

Unexploded ordnance from WWII is still frequently found in Germany.

As a public service announce for our reader that live in former war zones, make sure before you start digging you contact the phone & cable company, the electric company, and a bomb squad.

Cheers!
