Trieu Phong, Quang Tri (13 April 2017) – Mobile teams managed by Project RENEW and Norwegian People’s Aid today destroyed a 500lb American bomb that might be dropped here some forty years ago in Linh An Village of Trieu Trach Commune. Some metal collectors found the bomb and when they were attempting to sell it for scrap, the local authorities came to hall their reckless action and later called Project RENEW/NPA for emergency assistance.

We thank the U.S. Department of State for their continuing support to our work to make Quang Tri safe from unexploded bombs and mines.
