MIRI: The police confirmed that the object found by a resident in Sepupok, Batu Niah about 72 from Miri was confirmed to be a metal fragment suspected to be a component of the Long March 5B rocket belonging to China.

“The results of the preliminary investigation by the police found that there were metal fragments embedded in the ground at a depth of approximately one meter in the area around the house of one of the residents at the scene of the incident.

“However, the police could not confirm the origin of the metal and have requested assistance from the Hazardous Materials Unit (Hazmat) Team of the Fire and Rescue Department and Mosti to analyze the scene,” he said.

According to Utusan Malaysia, he said, the police advised the public not to be in the area near the scene of the incident because they feared the metal contained radioactive material that could be harmful to health.

According to him, the incident area has been closely monitored to ensure that no untoward incident occurs.

Therefore, he stressed that the public should not make any speculations or spread untrue news because it could cause annoyance to the community.

He asked the public to contact the nearest police station to pass on information or get confirmation about related incidents.

Earlier, the Malaysian Space Agency announced yesterday that the public should not tamper with, damage or destroy objects suspected to be debris from China’s Long March 5B rocket that entered Sarawak’s airspace since the early morning of July 31 (yesterday).
