caption: A disarmed World War II bomb is secured to a truck near Mülheim Bridge in Cologne, Germany, where authorities cleared about 20,000 people from the area until the device was rendered safe. (NYT story here.)

The photos were taken a day apart. They were both published (not consecutively) in the May 29 WSJ Week in Photos gallery.
