SINGAPORE - A war relic was found near East Coast Road on Tuesday (Oct 3), the second to be found in eight days. The other was found on Sept 26, at a construction site in Jurong Island.

The Singapore Army wrote in a Facebook post on Monday night that the Singapore Armed Forces' Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team assessed the relic on Jurong Island to be a 70mm high explosive projectile from the World War II era. The relic was disposed on-site by the EOD team on Sept 28.

On Tuesday, at close to noon, police were alerted to the other war relic, in 103 Lorong N Telok Kurau, near the TreeScape condominium.

Netizens said that at about 3pm, the affected area had been cordoned off and closed to the public.
