Man held over police bomb attack


A 39-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a bomb attack on police.

Detectives from the PSNI's serious crime branch detained the suspect in the Belfast area on Thursday morning.

Three officers escaped injury when a bomb partially exploded on the Duncrue towpath near the M5 motorway on March 9.

It is believed to have been detonated by a mobile phone as the officers responded to a call alleging a crime had been committed in the area.

The incident is being treated as attempted murder.

Dissident republicans were blamed for the attack. A gun was later found on the towpath.
