Unexploded shell removed from prefectural offices

Date Posted: 2002-02-28

The Ground Self-Defense Force’s bomb disposal squad on Feb. 24 disposed of an unexploded five-inch warship shell that had been carried into the prefectural building by mistake. In conjunction with the disposal operation that started at 10:00 a.m., 429 households having 1,200 residents and 760 firms within a 230-meter radius started evacuating at 9:00 a.m. Traffic in the area was also restricted. The neighborhood, housing Okinawa’s governmental and commercial hub, shut down entirely for about two hours on Sunday morning. A managing official apologized for the inconvenience caused and promised to instruct employees on procedures for handling unexploded ordnance in the future.
