Belfast Workmen Find Two Explosive Devices

Posted on August 23, 2018

Homes and offices were evacuated and dozens of children were moved from a creche after the discovery of pipe bomb-type devices. They were found close to a community centre in Churchill Street at about 13:00 BST on Wednesday. It is understood they were inside a bag hidden in greenery, filled with coins and had fuses ready to be lit. The devices were discovered by two workmen as they cleared ivy away from the front of a property. As there were children playing nearby, the workers brought the devices to safety and then phoned the police. A PSNI spokesman said: “These could have killed or seriously injured members of the public walking past the place where they had been crudely hidden. “Army technical officers carried out controlled explosions on both and they have been declared as viable devices.”
