UXO Found on Wed 10 APR 2019 by Team 5

EOD 5 responded to a call-out in Tottueng Thaing Village, Rus Sei Lok Commune, Cikreng District of Siem Reap Province where the team found one Chinese 82 mm type 30 mortar hanging in the tree in front of a house. It was safe to move and the team disposed of it.

One of the discussion points in a Mine Risk Education course is to encourage the villagers to only mark the location when and where something is found. THEN they should alert the authorities  rather than take it into town before the alert.
