An estimated 1,300 kilograms of explosives were used in the detonation, which took place about 600 meters from the shore in Gongliao District and involved a squad of navy divers tasked with setting charges on the unexploded ordnance.
An initial sighting was confirmed last Tuesday not far from a local elementary school in Mao'ao Bay after a recreational diver reported spotting suspicious objects a day earlier.
The bombs were found at a depth of 10-13 meters near what appeared to be an airplane propeller, according to authorities. [FULL STORY]
