Claims of a find of 'live' bombs in Port Vila harbour

A diver in Vanuatu says the increasing number of cruise ships visiting Port Vila could be in danger from at least five live Second World War bombs at the harbour entrance.

A group of divers first saw the bombs about two years ago and though they alerted authorities there have been no attempts to detonate the bombs.

Diver, Fabrice Bilandong tells Hilaire Bule that a New Zealand navy team was in Vanuatu last year but did not receive authorisation to destroy the bombs before their mission ended.
