QUANG TRI (VNS) — Five unexploded bombs were removed from the garden of a family in Tan Hop Commune in the central Quang Tri Province's Huong Hoa District on Saturday.

The bombs comprised one 160mm bomb, weighing 38kg, and four 130mm bombs, weighing 25kg each.

The bombs, accompanied by their original detonators, were found during an investigation of war martyrs. Vo Minh Hieu, who owns the garden, said he had buried 70 other bombs, but could not identify the location.

The search for the remaining bombs is ongoing.

Quang Tri was hit hardest by American bombs during the war. Several unexploded devices were left behind. The province is also home to 80 per cent of the country's disabled people, including those who were injured in bomb blasts after the war. —VNS
