Every government makes questionable decisions but you never hear anything about those decisions made in countries like Germany, the Netherlands or the UK.
Which is one reason this thread exists, to share news that may not quite make the (or all) international media.
So, some local news from Germany, even if not a political topic:
Yesterday 31,000 people in Hannover, state capital of Lower Saxony, were evacuated from their homes after the find of an unexploded 500pound American bomb from WWII. This was the second-largest evacuation in our history caused by the discovery of an unexploded ordnance from the war. The bomb was disarmed safely on site, a construction area on the former grounds of a school in a densely populated area of the city.
It has been estimated that there are still about 100,00 pieces of unexploded ordnance (UXO) in Germany, ranging from artillery shells to bombs of more than a tonne (the largest ever was a British "Tallboy" bomb of a 12,000 lbs). On average about 5,500 UXOs are found in Germany every year, with most of them only making the local news. Once in a while someone is killed by an UXO here in Germany, but those cases are, thankfully, pretty rare.
