Tokyo ordered about 16,000 residents to evacuate on Sunday while a bomb squad disposed of an unexploded bomb believed to have fallen during World War II in western Tokyo, Kyodo News said.

Ground Self-Defense Force members removed the fuse of the bomb in a two-hour operation earlier in the day, and the Chofu city government declared the area safe and called off the alert, Kyodo said.
