Police in the North have arrested two men in connection with a series of bomb attacks on the homes and vehicles of Sinn Féin members in Ballymena, Co Antrim.

The men were arrested close to Ballymena this morning. Security sources in the North have blamed the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) for the bomb attacks.

If the UVF was responsible, it would mark the first time the group has targeted republicans since the signing of the Good Friday Agreement.

The latest incident happened on Monday, when a pipe bomb was discovered under a van belonging to Sinn Féin member Michael Agnew at Dunfane Avenue.

Three weeks earlier, similar bombs were also found under the car and at the side of a house belonging to another Sinn Féin member in Ballymena.
