Police remove bombs on campus

The National,Monday July 4th, 2016

PORT Moresby police removed five petrol bombs from the Taurama campus of the University of Papua New Guinea Medical Faculty on Saturday.
National Capital District Police Superintendent Operations Brian Kombe said they were notified about the bombs by Uniforce security after their normal patrol around the campus.
Kombe said the five bombs were found beside the E-Block building inside the campus.
Badili police entered the campus and collected the bombs after Uniforce contacted them.
Kombe said the bombs were taken to their forensic department to identify the fingerprints on the bottles. Four of the five bombs were empty and one still had petrol inside.
According to the police forensic department, the bombs must have been there for two to three weeks because the petrol inside four had already evaporated, but there was still a strong smell of petrol in them.
Kombe said one of bottles was very tightly wrapped because there was still petrol inside it.
The bombs were made with petrol in beer bottles and wrapped with cloth.
Kombe said that the bombs were dangerous and could cause a lot of damage if lit and thrown.
Meanwhile, he said so far both the Waigani and Taurama campuses of UPNG were quiet and peaceful and they were keeping a 24-hour watch.
