The inhabitants of the island are still coming to grips with the extent of the threat. Every search uncovers more bombs: in the waters, caves and even people's backyards. Acid leaking out of the bombs poisons the water and the animals that people eat. As the race to remove the bombs becomes more hazardous, this report captures the dangerous task of cleaning up an old mess.
