Brno officials order map of potential unexploded WWII bombs

City Hall in Brno has had a map created of sites where there is a relatively high risk that unexploded World War II bombs may be buried, the newspaper Brněnský deník reported on Tuesday. Bombs were dropped on the Moravian capital by both the Americans and the Russians in the latter part of the war. One historian told Brněnský deník that there are still 10 or 12 US time bombs in the city that could explode when celluloid strips preventing them from going off eventually perish.
