About two weeks ago, the local force also collected another napalm bomb weighing about 350kg in the same commune.

Over the recent past, Ca Mau locals have detected many explosives left by the war, especially in the district. A serious case was recorded when a shell exploded in late last year in the district, killing five.

Local authorities are regularly warning residents to avoid impacting in any form on explosives found and to report authorities in an effort to ease the consequences.
