HÀ TĨNH — Đức Thọ District’s Military Command in the central province of Hà Tĩnh successfully removed a 340kg bomb from a local fish breeding lake yesterday, according to a local source.
The bomb was discovered three days ago by irrigation workers when they were dredging a fish lake owned by a local household at Đức Long Commune to construct canal systems for the Ngàn Trươi Irrigation Project.
The bomb, believed to have been dropped by the US Army during the war, measured 1.5m length and 50cm in diameter.
Workers immediately informed communal authorities and experts were dispatched to the scene.
The military has now moved the bomb to a safe location and are preparing to destroy it using a controlled explosion. — VNS
