ĐẮK LẮK – Two bombs weighing over 1,600kg left from the US war in Việt Nam were safely removed from the gardens of local families in Central Highlands’ Đắk Lắk Province on Tuesday, the military high command said.

A family in Lắk District’s Yang Tao Commune found a 600kg bomb in their garden last Friday.

The second bomb, weighing more than 1,000kg, was discovered the next day in the same commune.

After receiving reports from residents, the military and local authorities evacuated people from the area to deactivate the bombs.

The bombs are believed to be among hundreds of unexploded bombs left behind from the war in Đắk Lắk Province, which are being unearthed by competent agencies.

Unexploded ordnance left from the war remains a threat across Việt Nam, especially in the central region. — VNS
