February 19, 2023

QUẢNG BÌNH — The military force in the central province of Quảng Bình has removed a bomb left from wartime from the seabed offshore Quảng Trạch District and destroyed it safely, the command of the province’s border guard force said on Sunday. On February 18, military personnel in the province removed the bomb from the seabed safely and transported to the designated site for detonation. Decades after the end of war, Việt Nam still suffers from the deadly threat from bombs, mines and unexploded ordnance (UXO) left by war. According to the Việt Nam National Mine Action Centre, all 63 provinces and centrally-run cities in Việt Nam are contaminated with UXO, with 5.6 million hectares of land in total (17.71 per cent of the country’s acreage) affected. Quảng Bình Province is among the most heavily bombed locality during the war.
