A resident in the Mekong Delta province of Ca Mau has discovered the remains of five Vietnamese soldiers killed in the Vietnam War.
Du Hong Phuc of U Minh District was building a shrimp pond in his garden when he inadvertently dug up the remains wrapped in pieces of parachute fabric on Monday.
He also found some handmade detonators, often used by Vietnamese commandos in the war, next to the remains.
Local authorities have relocated the remains for re-burial at a local memorial for war martyrs.
Local residents said the five sets of remains belonged to Vietnamese commandos from Unit D10, who were killed after attacking an American military post in U Minh.
