Officials have requested modern technological equipment to enable them to continue their work of collecting unexploded ordnance (UXO) in sunken warships in the Mekong River in four areas of Kandal and Preveng (Prey Veng) provinces. Authorities have found many weapons and other UXOs in Lvea Em and Khsach Kandal districts of Kandal province and in Peam Chor and Peamro districts of Prey Veng province, but their efforts to retrieve and dispose of them have been postponed due to high levels of water and the lack of some technical equipment. Mey Sophea, commander of the UXO Clearance Unit under the National Centre for Peacekeeping Force and Explosive Remnants of War Clearance (NPMEC), told The Post on January 24 that so far the search operation team at the Mekong River floor had yet to resume its activities due to certain technical requirements.
If you find anything that appears to be an explosive device, do not touch it, leave it where it is and call the police. We will contact the appropriate agencies to properly dispose of the item.
