Goebbels' bunker found in Berlin

The city authorities in Berlin say a World War Two bunker discovered in December was almost certainly built for the Nazi Propaganda Minister, Joseph Goebbels.

The three-room bunker was found by construction workers clearing a site for a planned Holocaust Memorial near Potsdamer Platz in central Berlin.

The three-hundred metre square structure was connected to a house belonging to Goebbels that was destroyed during the war.

Officials say no decision has yet been made as to what to do with the remains.

Some other Nazi bunkers have been filled in or demolished.

Joseph Goebbels and his family committed suicide in the closing days of the war.
