Taipei, March 31 (CNA) A cache of bullets found at Taichung Armed Forces General
Hospital were not manufactured or used by the nation’s military personnel, the Ministry of National Defense (MND) said Friday.
MND spokesman Chen Chung-chi (陳中吉) said at a news conference that a cleaner noticed a red plastic bag in a garbage can in the men’s room of the emergency ward at 1:45 p.m. Thursday and found the dumped bullets inside.
They included 30 rounds of 5.56 mm bullets, 64 rounds of 0.38 inch bullets, one round of 9 mm bullets and one round of an unknown caliber bullet.
An examination of the bullets ruled out the possibility that they were manufactured or used by the military, Chen said. [FULL STORY]
