PHU THO (VNS) — Twenty-seven warheads, found recently in Doan Hung District in northern Phu Tho Province, were deactivated by the local Military Command.

The 105mm warheads reportedly belonged to French colonial ships which sank in the Lo River in 1947, according to senior lieutenant-colonel Nguyen Van Thang, head of the district Military Command.

There could be more unexploded warheads in the river and the military forces are searching for them, Thang added.—VNS
