Four more suspected bombs are being investigated in Northern Ireland according to the BBC. Details of two of the bombs have not yet been verified by Breitbart London, but the others are in West Belfast and Lurgan.
The Belfast bomb is believed to have come off under a car and has led to the evacution of homes. The Lurgan device has led to the closure of the rail service between the province and the Republic. The news comes after Police discovered a pipe bomb yesterday in North Belfast that “wreckless” terrorists had left on a housing estate.
The rail operator from Belfast to Dublin has closed the line between Portadown and Belfast because of the Lurgan bomb. They warned passengers this morning that a bus service would replace the usual rail service.
Police Chief Inspector Paul Reid told the Irish Independent that motorists “should avoid the Antrim Road and Cornakinnegar Road areas until further notice.
He continued: “I would appeal to any member of the public who notices any suspicious item or who may have any information about persons acting suspiciously in the area recently to report it to police immediately.”
In West Belfast Army Technical Officers are on the scene and have evacuated a number of residents as a precaution. Sources on the scene are suggesting a small bomb went off under a car. Members of the public have taken to Twitter to complain that British people on the mainland take little interest in bomb scares in Northern Ireland:
