Suspect device

A suspect device has been found at Sinn Fein’s office in Cookstown.

Sinn Fein had this to say:

Sinn Féin MLA Francie Molloy has confirmed that a pipe bomb has been found at the Sinn Fein office in Cookstown.

Mr Molloy said:

“I am very concerned about the discovery of this device at our office in Cookstown. While it is unclear whether the pipe bomb is viable I understand that local people will be justifiably angry that this busy constituency office has been targeted.

“Those responsible have nothing to offer our society. They will not deflect Sinn Féin from making progress on our united Ireland agenda or from delivering the top class constituency service that local people deserve.”

Update: Security alert at Lurgan Police Station. Telephone bomb warning.

Further update: Reports that a Policeman has beenshot in Lurgan and taken to hospital.
