Bomb disposal experts in the German city of Koblenz have successfully defused a World War II bomb found in the riverbed of the Rhine.
The 1.8 tonne bomb was dropped by an RAF bomber between 1943 - 1945.
It was discovered when water levels fell because of a prolonged dry spell.
A second, smaller bomb, dropped by American forces was also defused.
Experts say it was the more dangerous of the two.
As a precaution, nearly half the city's population was evacuated during the operation.
It was the biggest bomb disposal operation in Germany since 1945. A BBC correspondent says about 600 tonnes of unexploded ordnance are discovered in Germany every year.
More than 250 block-buster bombs were dropped on Koblenz between 1943 - 1945. The fire department says some are still undiscovered.
