    Military experts and Italian soldiers have closed off the area around George Clooney's home in northern Italy after an arsenal of unexploded World War II bombs was discovered about 50 feet from his 30-room perch on the cliffs of Lake Como, the Daily Mail reports.

    The 60-year-old hand grenades, mortars and aircraft bombs were discovered when a fisherman dragged one of the munitions up from the bottom of the lake and the authorities were contacted.

    Residents nearby have been told to stay inside and avoid windows while navy divers retrieve the devices so they can be detonated in a nearby cave.

    In 2002, Clooney purchased the villa Oleandra at Laglio -- which boasts a private jetty, pool, gym, tennis courts, sprawling gardens and neighbors like Donatella Versace -- for about $9.9 million, according to the Mail.
