The German city of Augsburg alerts of a mass evacuation on Christmas Day, in order to defuse a 3,8 tonne bomb from World War II.
Around 54,000 of the city's 287,000 residents will have to leave their homes when the bomb is to be disposed of, and the government designates it as the largest mass evacuation in Germany since World War II.
800 police officers will be going door to door to ensure that all residents follow the evacuation order.
- We must go along the streets and knock on doors to apartments, said police spokesman Siegfried Hartmann.
Authorities in Augsburg have decided to defuse the powerful bomb on a public holiday, because they believe the evacuation then will become easier, reports NTB.
