Dublin pipe-bomb find linked to dissident republicans

20/01/2005 - 13:30:00

Gardaí are linking the discovery of a live pipe bomb underneath a van in north Dublin this morning to dissident republicans.

Two men were arrested in connection with the discovery, which forced the evacuation of a number of homes on Belcamp Crescent in Clonshaugh.

The device was spotted at around 1am and residents were only allowed to return to their homes around three hours later, when bomb disposal experts had made the area safe.

Gardaí said today that the two men being held in connection with the incident were also being questioned about Continuity IRA activity.
