London: Police in Northern Ireland say
they`re investigating a bomb attack that injured three
children.

Officers said a device exploded today close to a school
in Lurgan, Co Armagh, about 35km west of Belfast.

Police were evacuating homes in the area following
reports of a separate device when a bomb exploded without
warning in Kilmaine Street. Two 12-year-old children and a
two-year old suffered cuts caused by flying debris.

A total of two other suspicious objects in the area are
being checked by army specialists, police said.

Dissident Irish Republican groups have carried out a
series of recent bomb attacks in Northern Ireland, but have
rarely been successful in killing or injuring their targets.
