london - London City Airport opens again. The airport was forced to cancel all flights on Monday because of the discovery of a 500 kilos bomb from the Second World War. That explosive has since been removed and is later detonated, reports the BBC.

The discovery of the bomb at a depth of some 15 meters caused considerable inconvenience. The authorities evacuated local residents and annoyed up to 16,000 travelers. Marine divers worked at night to transport the German explosive through the Thames.

London City Airport has announced that flights will be operated again on Tuesday. Last year, according to the BBC, more than 4.5 million travelers used the airport near the business center of London.
