Plenty of bang in ‘dud’ bomb

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

KO­DIAK: A World War 2 relic that was dis­played out­side an Alaska bar for years turned out not to be a dud.

Sol­diers on Wed­nes­day det­o­nated the 572kilo­gramme aerial bomb. Ra­dio sta­tion KMXT re­ported that though it had lost some of its boom af­ter 60 years, it did go with a bang.

A piece of the bomb was sal­vaged for dis­play at a mu­seum. – Sapa-AP
