Today's news out of the World Cup in Germany:

BERLIN - The media center next to the stadium set to host the World Cup final was evacuated Friday when a World War II explosive was found on the grounds.

A gardener at the Olympiastadion reported a suspicious device about 30 yards from the stadium. The 3-inch fuse was said to be from a flack gun used by German soldiers in the defense of the city 61 years ago.

The center was evacuated for about 1 1/2 hours while the fuse was removed, although a stadium spokesman said it never posed a danger to those nearby.

Apparently the device was of French manufacture.
