Bomb in car defused near Northern Ireland border

Police say British Army experts have defused a bomb in a car abandoned on a rural roadside in Northern Ireland.



Dublin: Police say British Army experts have defused a bomb in a car abandoned on a rural roadside in Northern Ireland.

A two-day alert ended today when police confirmed that a viable explosive was inside the car near the County Fermanagh village of Derrylin 6 kilometers from the Irish border.

No group claimed responsibility. Police said they believed an Irish Republican Army splinter group was trying to attack a police station in the nearby town of Lisnaskea but abandoned the bomb short of its target.
Fermanagh is hosting the G8 summit in June. Its venue, the Lough Erne resort, is about 18 kilometers from the bomb`s location.
Police have repeatedly thwarted IRA attacks this month, including two attempted mortar attacks on police stations in Belfast and Londonderry.
