US Navy offers assistance after Great Barrier Reef bomb drop

Reuters: The US Navy offered Australia any help it wanted to retrieve 4 bombs mistakenly dropped inside the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef marine park last week.

US Navy Harrier fighter jets were forced to drop the bombs, 2 inert and 2 carrying explosives but not armed, after civilian boats were spotted near their original target.
