Quang Tri unearths 240-kg bomb

Sappers in the central province of Quang Tri founded a 240-kg bomb on April 19, when working on a project to expand the Lao Bao international border gate in Huong Hoa district.

Lying 6 metres under the ground, the weapon is 1.6 metres long and contains approximately 80 kg of explosives.

The low-drag general-purpose MK 82 bomb was said to be made and dropped in Lao Bao by the American army during wartime.
