An “undercar booby trap bomb” has been discovered under the car of a soldier in Bangor, County Down this morning.
The bomb fell out from underneath the car this morning and was discovered. 20 – 30 homes in the area were subsequently evacuated.
This follows the bomb at the Strand Road Police Station in Derry yesterday, blamed on republican splinter group Óglaigh na hÉireann.
In May, the IMC said that the threat from dissident republican militants remained high, and the events of the last few days appear to prove them right.
