Many Explosives Showing U.S. Imperialists' Atrocities Discovered

Pyongyang, June 26 (KCNA) -- Nearly 70 years have passed after the end of the Korean War provoked by the U.S. imperialists, but the scar of this tragic war still remains unhealed in the DPRK.

Over the last decade alone, many unexploded bombs and shells, dropped and fired by the enemies during the war, have been found in the capital city of Pyongyang and other parts of the DPRK.

Explosive removers of the then Pyongyang City People's Security Bureau discovered dozens of bombs at the sites for construction of the Munsu Water Park and the Mirim Riding Club in 2012 and six 250-kg bombs and over 900 shells at the construction site of Mirae Scientists Street in 2014.

In 2020, 50 unexploded shells were detected during the ground excavation project for the Pyongyang General Hospital.

The facts clearly show how cruelly the enemies behaved to devastate the DPRK during the war.

A large number of explosives, including a 250-kg bomb and various kinds of mines and incendiary bombs, were detected in Kangwon Province during the construction of livestock farming base in the Sepho area. In particular, a germ bomb, forbidden under the international law, was found in Murung-ri of Ichon County.

During the war, the U.S. imperialists showered many butterfly bombs and mortar shells on Kaesong City in a bid to destroy excellent historical cultural relics of the Korean nation. Scores of such bombs and shells were detected in the city.

One of large bombs, dropped by the U.S. imperialist air pirates to destroy roads, railways and bridges in the period of war, was removed from the section of ground excavation for Uan Dam of Huichon Power Station No. 10 in late February of 2014.

Besides, more than 760 explosives were detected and removed from Kumgang and Kosong counties in Kangwon Province. Among them are eight 500-kg bombs and ten 250-kg bombs. And several thousands of blind shells were found in different parts of South Hamgyong Province in the first half of 2021.

Those explosives go to prove once again and evidently that the U.S. imperialists are notorious murderers and peace wreckers. -0-
