More than 50,000 people were made to leave Brindisi in Southern Italy, where soldiers created a red zone around the bomb’s location.

It’s believed it was dropped by the British in 1941 and contained 40 kilograms of dynamite.

The explosive was found during renovations of a local cinema. Experts used a robotic machine to defuse it.
