Berlin police evacuated thousands of people from a central area of the German capital Friday and shut down the main train station as a precaution while they defused and removed an unexploded World War II bomb found during recent construction work. Some 10,000 residents and workers were forced to leave a 2-square-kilometer area, including the train station, while bomb experts defused the 500-kilogram British bomb dropped during the war.The city estimates at least 3,000 bombs, grenades and other munitions are still buried.
