Army divers defuse explosives found off Palma coast

THE Spanish Army’s anti-mine scuba diving team (Ubmcm) has dismantled 13 old mortar grenades discovered off the coast of Palma de Mallorca.
Specifically, they were 81-mm grenades found just 20 metres from the Cala Gamba Port.
A statement from the Guardia Civil officers explained that the devices had been found by an amateur scuba diver who alerted them.
All remains of the devices have been retrieved to minimise environmental impact and a comprehensive inspection of the sea bed has been carried out in the area in case of the presence of other explosives.
