An unexploded 230-kilogram bomb leftover from the Vietnam War was unearthed in the central province of Nghe An on Thursday, newswire Dan Tri reported.

A team of sappers searching for unexploded ordnances (UXOs) found the bomb in a paddy field in Vinh City's Hung Hoa Commune.

The bomb, 1.67 meters long and 30 centimeters wide, was found two meters below ground.

It was removed from the field and defused later.

According to provincial military officials, the bomb was dropped by American army forces during 1968-1972 period of the Vietnam War.


It is the third bomb unearthed in Vinh City over the last month. On July 13, a 230-kilogram bomb was found in a field in Hung Dung Ward.

Three days earlier, a 150-kilogram bomb was unearthed from a field in Dong Vinh Ward.
