On July 31st, PeaceTrees’ EOD teams responded to a call in the village of Tà Nua, Hương Hóa District after a farmer tending to cassavas discovered what he believed to be unexploded ordnance. Thanks to his report to the Thanh Border Control, PeaceTrees’ teams were able to come and assess the severity of the situation, eventually discovering 75 Blu-24 cluster munitions, 50 of which were destroyed and 25 others removed safely.
