Sri Racha-April 3,2014; Police, led by Pol Lt Col Amnart Planfaifa of an EOD unit in Chacheongsao, rushed to the scene and found the bomb, about 1.2m long and 30cm in diameter, embedded in the mud of a large pond.
The bomb, weighing about 200kg, was discovered after the water level receded, police said. It could have potentially destroyed an area within a 500-metre radius.

Pol Lt Col Amnart said the bomb was still active and police were investigating the exact circumstances behind the discovery. The pond lies next to a factory which has been operating for about 20-30 years.

Air force warns of hidden menace
Many bombs dropped during World War II still lie in certain areas of Bangkok, the Royal Thai Air Force has warned.The caution came after a powerful blast at a scrap metal shop in Bang Khen district on Wednesday killed at least eight people and injured more than 10 others.
Air force spokesman Monthon Satchukorn said people should immediately notify police if they discover suspicious oval-shaped metal objects.
People should stay at least about 400 metres away from them, AM Monthon said, adding the air force has an explosive ordnance disposal unit that specialises in handling these types of bombs.
It was a difficult task to detect bombs that might have been buried in the capital and it was uncertain how many exist, AM Monthon said.
Areas bombed during the war around 1944 included Bang Sue train station, Siriraj Hospital, Bangkok Noi train station, the Memorial Bridge area, and Rama VI Bridge area, he said.
