Blast incendiary device in hijacked van

The bomb alert on the Ryanair plane was a hoax. The incendiary bomb placed in the van, hijacked last night by three armed and masked men, and whose driver was then ordered to take it to the Strand Road police station in Derry, was not. As a recent New York Times article pointed out, reprinted here, the army bomb disposal teams, EODR, were called out 495 times last year, and dealt with 51 viable devices.
