Officials from CMAC uncovered more unexploded ordnance Tuesday from the west bank of the Sangker River in Sangkat Svay Por, Battambang City.
Work is currently being done along the riverbank in preparation for the River Festival. The munitions were to be detonated in a controlled explosion yesterday afternoon.
Earlier on 29 January, a notice was sent to citizens there, warning those living along a river in Battambang City to stay away from the park or remain indoors.
According to the notice from the city administration, the reason for the appeal came after UXOs were discovered during infrastructure work. A de mining team inspection found that there were several unexploded ordnance on the site, some of which have been cleared and collected by the task force.
