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]
