Another mortar shell fashioned as an improvised explosive device was recovered at Sitio Pantano, San Roque yesterday.
The mortar shell was found at the same place where two similar shells were discovered last week.
A police report said residents reported to authorities the presence of the mortar shell amid grasses at a vacant lot.
Recovered was a live 60 mm mortar shell.
Bomb experts said the mortar shell with wire connected at the rear end was considered an improvised explosive device (IED) designed to kill and destroy properties.
Last week two live 60 mm mortar shells were found in the same place. The shells also have wires connected to the rearend and ready to explode.
Bomb experts said the improvised bombs can explode anytime if equipped with a battery and a triggering device.
A police source said the three IEDs might have disposed by terrorist bombers after an aborted terror plot in this city. -- Dan Toribio Jr.
