A Malaysian fisherman has been using a deadly World War II bomb as an anchor for his boat.
The police made the shocking discovery during a routine patrol in a fishing village in the southern Johor state.
The fisherman had been using the bomb for several months and thought it was safe on account of its age, a local newspaper reported.
Police alerted the bomb squad, who removed the 160 millimetre device to be destroyed. Officers discovered eight similar bombs in the village.
"Bombs about the size of a small fire extinguisher were found behind a restaurant in the village," local police chief Abdul Aziz Ahmad said. "Unless the bombs are destroyed, they are considered still active and very dangerous," he warned.
