An anti-personnel mine was found on the central beach in Tsarevo on Bulgaria’s southern Black Sea, according to Bulgarian media reports on August 6.
The object was found by a holidaymaker, who alerted the authorities.
The area was immediately cordoned off and a Navy explosives disposal was expected to arrive.
There was no immediate statement by the Navy.
In late July, there were three incidents in which parts of Russian-made missiles were found in places on Bulgaria’s coast. The objects were found to be spent stage 1 boosters, with no explosive contents.
On July 1, the Navy destroyed a floating sea mine off Bulgaria’s coast, after the object was sighted 27 nautical miles east of the mouth of the Kamchiya River.
