The bomb’s location was close to a market and residential area, posing a high risk to local people.

According to the force, the bomb, around 240kg in weight, 1.8m in length and 0.3m in diameter, with 80kg trinitrotoluene inside, had been dropped by the US Air Force during the war in Vietnam.

They then deactivated and removed the bomb to a safer place for detonation.
