BA RIA-VUNG TAU — The remains of five bodies, thought to be foreigners, were discovered on Monday on Con Dao Island where workers were clearing a site for a park.
Con Dao District's People's Committee official Duong Van Phai said the site, in the south of the island, used to be a French cemetary.
The remains, found under a cross, were thought to be of French nationals or foreigners who worked for the French during the resistance.
The site has been cordoned off and secured, awaiting inspections by authorities.
"We don't know if there are more remains to be found," Phai said.
Representatives of the French Consulate in HCM City were expected to begin identifying the remains today. — VNS
