Dublin bombs declared 'live'

Two suspicious devices found in Dublin have been declared viable by the army bomb disposal team.

The devices were found in Ronanstown and Ballyfermot, during four separate security alerts in the city.

The suspected explosives were both removed from the scene for investigation and the army have confirmed that they were both live.

Meanwhile, a device found in Oliver Bond Street was declared to be a hoax, while an object found during a planned search in Coolock was an old training grenade.
