BRITISH ORDNANCE disposal company Bactec International has found a major haul of bombs, landmines and ammunition on the site of an extension at Kinmen Airport, Taiwan.
It was discovered during Bactec's explosive ordnance survey, clearance and disposal work on the site. It included 35 American and Russian bombs between 100lb and 500lb (45kg and 227kg) and 3,400 antipersonnel and anti-tank mines.
Most of the bombs and mines, which date from the 1940s and 1950s, are being disposed of on site while others are being taken to a military range.
Survey and clearance of the site is due to finish by March.
