YEN BAI (VNS)— A bomb disposal team in northern Yen Bai Province successfully defused a 340kg bomb discovered 5m underground in the provincial Phuc Loc Commune on Wednesday.

During upgrades to National Highway 32 through the commune's Village 4 last Friday, workers uncovered the bomb which had been dropped by American troops during the 1968-75 war.

Over 50 soldiers were mobilised to guard and ensure local people's safety before disposal. — VNS
