WWII shell found on Kita-Nashiro Beach

Date Posted: 2011-06-09

An unexploded World War II piece of ordnance was found buried in sand on the Kita-Nashiro Beach in Nashiro, Itoman City, Sunday afternoon.

A 37-year-old Naha City man discovered the unexploded shell while his young child was playing on the beach. He immediately called police after spotting the 90mm shell about 5 p.m. Itoman City Police say the unexploded shell was made in the U.S., and had its fuse intact.

Although there were swimmers on the beach, authorities say no evacuation was ordered. The Ground Self-Defense Force unexploded ordnance disposal party received the emergency call. EOD technicians removed the shell two hours after first examining it on the beach.
