Search finds bomb components in Northern Ireland prison
Belfast: Prison authorities say they found bomb-making equipment inside a high security prison in Northern Ireland.
The Northern Ireland Prison Service said yesterday the components were buried in a garden inside the perimeter fence of Maghaberry Prison, south of Belfast.
No explosives have been found, although last month traces of a component used in Semtex were uncovered in the jail.
Police, Army and prison officers have been conducting a major search of the prison since Thursday. More than 850 inmates have been confined to their cells during the first major sweep of the facility in a decade.
The prison`s inmates include members of IRA splinter groups opposed to the peace process.
