Dak Lak (VNA) - Two bombs weighing over 1,600kg left from the US war in Vietnam have been safely removed from the gardens of local families in the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak, the Military High Command said.

A family in Lak district’s Yang Tao commune found a 600kg bomb in their garden on August 11.

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 Dak Lak province, which are being unearthed by competent agencies.
