WWII mine set off by tractor

A mine exploded in a field near Břeclav in South Moravia on Wednesday when it was run over by a tractor. Police said the 47-year-old driver was mulching his field when the glass and wheels were shattered by the explosion. He walked away from the blast unharmed, though the machine itself was badly damaged. The mine is believed to have been laying in the ground since the Second World War.
