The cluster bomb was found early Tuesday morning while Hao was clearing weeds around his peanut field. Knowing how deadly a cluster bom could be, Hoa picked up his cell phone to call RENEW’s hotline telephone number.
After investigation, Team Leader Duong Duc Tam ordered that they would have to destroy the device in place.
The demolition would need twenty sandbags.
The cluster bomb would be destroyed together with a 40mm grenade, which the team had removed from Tan Hiep Commune of Cam Thuy.
Team members needed to evacuate not only villagers but also cows.
When all the sentries were in place and the road was blocked, Team Leader Tam radioed to fire the detonation.
58-year-old Phung Dinh Hao now feels assured as he can expand his peanut cultivation without fearing unexploded ordnance.
