Device intended to disrupt ceremony

A device was planted at Lisburn City Council offices today in an effort to disrupt a ceremony to grant the Freedom of the City of Lisburn to the Northern Ireland Prison Service.

One wonders who the bigger “enemies of the peace process” are, those who planted the device or the prison officers who were being honoured for years of service to law and order in the face of terrorist threat.
