  1. Old bomb kills four civilians

    Vietnam: A government offical has reported that four men were killed when a Vietnam war-era bomb exploded when they were scavenging for metal.

    The Communist Party secretary of Huong Hoa village Truong Quang Than said that three farmers and a teacher were killed when the bomb exploded on Monday.

    The area was part of the Ho Chi Minh Trail, which was bombarded by US planes during the war, to prevent the movement of supplies, men and weapons from the North to southern battlefields.
