Northern Ireland Bomb

Northern Ireland Bomb, FOUR men have been arrested after a bomb was found in Northern Ireland shortly before a visit by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Police said the viable bomb was discovered after officers investigating dissident republican activity stopped a car in Londonderry.

Witnesses said police rammed the vehicle in Creggan at about 8.40pm on Thursday.

The army bomb disposal unit was called in after officers became suspicious about contents in the car.

A spokeswoman for the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said: “At approximately 8.40pm, police stopped a car and subsequently arrested two males aged 47 and a male aged 40 after the discovery of what is believed to be a viable IED (improvised explosive device). A fourth male aged 41 was arrested nearby.”

All four suspects were taken to the PSNI serious crime suite in Antrim for further questioning.

The discovery of the bomb came ahead of a visit by the US secretary of state.
