Yesterday (December 2nd), an official team from the Navy were sent to further explore the Mae Klong river. This includes areas of zone 5 to zone 8, from the military’s side of the river to the Ratchaburi Chinese Night Market (Talad Kao Kui Kee) river area. The mission will not interfere with the daily lives of the villagers in the area until there is a confirmed date to when the bombs will be removed from the river.
To ensure the safe removal of the bombs, the military will have to explore the water of the Mae Klong river to carefully plan out the mission of removing the 7 bombs. The exploration is expected to be completed within the 4th of this month.

The officials and villagers in the area will be notified before the mission of removing the bombs takes place to properly evacuate from the area as a safety precaution of the people in the area and their important belongings.
