WWII weapons found under playground – The Local

Posted: October 13, 2010 in Uncategorized

World War II weapons including grenade-launchers, rifles and ammunition have been found buried less than two metres below a children’s playground in a day-care centre in Bremen, media reported Wednesday.

Experts have spent the last few days searching the area for unexploded ordnance, after studying historical records and aerial photographs, daily Bild reported.

The cache was buried just 1.8 metre below ground – though a layer of concrete that had been lain above the weapons since the end of the war meant there had been little danger to children at the centre, an expert said.
