SINGAPORE - A war relic uncovered at a construction site on Jurong Island has been disposed of on-site, said the Singapore Armed Forces.
The SAF Explosive Ordnance Team was sent to the site on Sept 26 after the discovery of the relic, which was a 70mm high explosive projectile that orginated from World War II.
It took two days for the team to dispose of the projectile on Sept 28, said the SAF in its Facebook post on Monday (Oct 2).
Last year, a 2m-long aerial bomb was discovered on a barge carrying a consignment of sand from Vietnam. The bomb was taken to Pulau Senang, where it was denotonated.
A 105mm British projectile was also discovered in Sengkang West that year.
