thelocal.de A controlled detonation of a 500-kg bomb from the Second World War has left a 20-metre-wide crater in the middle of one of Germany's busiest traffic corridors on Tuesday night. Traffic was jammed up as deep as 20 kilometres on the Autobahn 3 around Offenbach, a suburb of Frankfurt, on Wednesday morning, according to the Rheinisches Post. Police are encouraging commuters to take the train. It is unclear when the road will be open again, though the motorway is open in the direction to Frankfurt. Detonation crews had originally tried to chemically defuse the bomb. When that didn't work, they had to do the controlled detonation, leaving a two- to three-metre-deep hole in the road. to read more: thelocal.de
