Munich WWII Bomb Detonation 'The Fuse Was a Real Bastard'

German bomb disposal expert Andreas Heil, 53, talks to SPIEGEL about the difficult decision to detonate an unexploded 250-kilogram aerial bomb found in central Munich last week. The blast damaged surrounding buildings but was unavoidable because defusing the unstable bomb was too dangerous, he said.
