Project RENEW is a joint effort between the provincial authorities and international non-governmental organisations to reduce the number of victims of cluster bombs and other unexploded ordnances left over from the war. 

The shells were found when a resident in Quarter 6 of Gio Linh township was digging soil to build his house. 

After receiving his emergency call, the team arrived at the scene and moved the 60mm shells to a disposal site for safe destruction. 

Truong Van Vien, head of the team, said most of the shells are unfired and a number are without fuses.
