VietNamNet BridgeAn unidentified flying object exploded at about 10a.,m on May 27 over the northern part of Phu Quoc Island, off the coast of the southern province of Kien Giang, according to Col. Nguyen Van Qui, military chief of the island district.

Many local residents found many grey metal pieces, including a 1,5m long piece.

The island district authorities quickly contacted airline companies in Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand, but as of 10p.m. the day, none had confirmed any of their flights having faced accidents.

The explosion happened at about 8km above the ground, and perhaps it was a plane, but authorities could not identify whether it was a civil or military aircraft.

The Phu Quoc Island People’s Committee mobilised local armed forces and residents to rescue duty.
