Civil war UXOs found in city construction site

A group of construction workers uncovered three unexploded ordinance munitions and about 60 bullets in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district on Tuesday, while digging in a construction site in front of the Ministry of Labour. Ban Soleak, a UXO monitor for the Cambodian Mine Action Centre in Takeo province, said the munitions consisted of three live UXO M49 rounds and between 50 and 60 inactive bullets left over from forces loyal to Lon Nol during Cambodia’s civil war era. He added that the munitions will be destroyed at his office in Takeo province.
