About 12,000 people have been evacuated in the eastern German city of Oranienburg due to a bomb from the Second World War, DPA reports.

A 900-meter radius was evacuated after a 250-kilogram US bomb was discovered during a systematic search in the city at the end of November.

A team of six sappers work on the bomb disposal.

Rail and ship services in the city are affected.

The city, which houses about 45,000 people, is located less than 40 kilometers north of the German capital Berlin.
