Military forces of the central province of Quang Ngai have defused a 250-kg bomb left from the anti-US war in a rice field in Ba Vinh commune, Ba To district.

The bomb, 1.65 m in length and 30 cm in diameter, was discovered by local farmers.

Coded DK82 and produced in 1967, the bomb was dropped onto the Ba To battlefield by the US troops during the war.

In mid-November, workers unearthed 64 mortar shells at a construction site in Son Ha district./.
