“An ordinary aerial bomb from the Second World War. The defusing was neither difficult nor extraordinary,” says Rainer Woitschek from the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Service of the Arnsberg district government.

At 12:55 p.m. on 23 June 2020, the whole thing was over for the RUB campus, the Bochum University of Applied Sciences and the adjacent housing estate. The lockdown of the eastern part of the campus could be lifted.
