The bomb-detection area is near Vinashin-Hoang Long ship building company.

Le Van Quyet, head of Ham Rong Ward’s military command, said the bomb showed no signs of damage, therefore it could explode at any time.

“We have reported the case to Thanh Hoa City People’s Committee and the city’s Military Command to find a way to move the bomb to the safe area,” he said.

The local authorities have assigned Ham Rong Ward’s police and local military force to set up guard teams around the clock and build warning signs at the bomb-detection area to prevent road users and vehicles from approaching the area, ensuring security of locals and their property.

The ongoing construction to upgrade the road to Ham Rong Truc Lam Monastery was invested by Ham Rong Historical and Cultural Site’s Management Board.

Unexploded ordnance left from the war remains a threat across Viet Nam, especially in the central region.
