World News: Four injured after old WWII aircraft bomb explodes in Munich Updated: 2021-12-02 12:07:41 KST


Let's take a look at what's going on in 'The World Now'.

Four people were injured near a bridge near Munich's busy main train station on Wednesday, after an old aircraft bomb exploded.
Police say the explosion happened as the site was being drilled to build a tunnel.
The blast resulted in rail travel to and from the main train station being suspended.
World War Two bombs are often discovered during construction work in Germany, and are usually defused by experts or destroyed in controlled explosions.
In fact, more than 2-thousand tons of live bombs and munitions are discovered each year, more than 70 years after the end of the second World War.
This comes as British and American warplanes devastated the country with 1.5 million tons of bombs, with officials estimating 15-percent of the bombs having failed to explode, some of which were buried six meters deep in the ground.
Germany has previously reported deadly explosion due to the buried bombs, including in 2014 when a construction worker was killed when his power shovel struck a buried bomb.

With looming tax hikes and high share prices, CEOs and corporate insiders have sold a record 69 billion US dollars in stocks this year.
According to InsiderScore, CEOs, founders and insiders have been cashing out at the highest pace on record, up 30-percent from 2020, as of Monday.
Experts say selling it likely to increase even more as December is usually an active month for sales due to tax planning.
However, while some market watchers see insider sell as a major warning sign, many of the stocks sold by these insiders, including Tesla and Amazon have continue to surge after the selling.
In addition, while higher federal tax for the 'super earners' may be contributed to the recent rise in selling, others say the biggest factor driving up the sales total is the high stock valuations.

Archaeologists in Peru have unearthed a well-preserved mummy that is estimated to be at least 800 years old,.. if not older.
The pre-Incan mummy was discovered at the archaeological complex of Cajamarquilla, located east of Lima, and is presumed to be from the pre-Inca Chaclla culture.
Experts say while the exact age of the mummy is unknown, it could be between 800 to 12-hundred years old, with further carbon dating to be carried out.
What's fascinated the archeologists is that the mummy was found in a fetal position, tied with ropes in a oval underground funerary structure.
It was also surrounded by various offering materials, including pots, ceramics and gourds containing botanical remains.
