The discovery of an unexploded <span class="caps">WWII</span> bomb in the Bavarian city of Augsburg has prompted the mass Christmas Day evacuation of about 54,000 people to allow for the device to be safely disarmed.

According to German <a href="http://www.dw.com/en/augsburg-begins-germanys-largest-evacuation-since-wwii/a-36905497" target="_blank">reports</a>, this is the largest evacuation of its kind in post-war Germany.

Police vehicles traveled the streets of Augsburg on December 25 urging people to leave the evacuation zone.
