Incendiary device found in store

27 December 2004

Police in County Down have advised business key holders in Newry to thoroughly check their premises.

It follows the discovery of an incendiary-type device in a sports shop on Monday.

The device was discovered shortly after 1700 GMT in the pocket of a garment in the premises at the Old Creamery Retail Park at Monaghan Street.

Police evacuated people from the premises and Army technical experts were sent to the scene.

It follows a wave of fire bombings which have destroyed several businesses across Northern Ireland.

Dissident republicans have been linked to the latest wave of fire bombings.

Devices have been discovered in Lisburn, Newry, Antrim, Derry, Newtownabbey and Ballymena.
