World War II refuse
The week's news at a glance.

On some artifacts, Nazi insignia are still visible. In nearby Serbia, the twisted remains of Nazi warships blown up by retreating German troops are slowly emerging from the water. The river was wide and deep, said Russian military attaché Anatolij Calisev, and certainly holds many mysteries.
