CMAC retrieves 765 UXOs from sunken ship

The Cambodian Mine Action Centre said yesterday it had collected 765 unexploded pieces of ordnance, totalling more than four tonnes of explosives, discovered in a sunken boat in the Tonle Sap  in Kampong Chhnang province late last week. The artillery and mortar shells discovered ranged from 105mm to 60mm in size and were found by a team of CMAC underwater Explosive Ordnance Disposal members scouring the river bed since June 2, after receiving information from a local fisherman who had discovered the boat. CMAC officials said they expected to recover more UXOs in the coming days.
