After finding the bomb two meters under the ground, the worker immediately informed the province’s mobile bomb disposal team who was quickly present at the scene to localize the area and remove citizens.

After an hour of working, the team successfully removed the bomb to the ground.

According to initial information, that is a MK82 500 LBS which the US troops dropped during the American War.
