Spring Cleaning Turns Up WWII Era Projectile

Hiroshima, Japan A family doing some spring cleaning in the garage were startled after they discovered an old munition item buried in a closet. The family promptly notified authorities who responded with technical support from members of the Japanese Ground Self-Defense Force 13th Division.

The munition was identified as a WWII era Japanese projectile (specific type not provided). It's unclear how the projectile ended up in the house or exactly how long it was in the closet. Authorities safely removed the projectile for proper off-site disposal.
