Man arrested over 1998 car bomb: Quizzed over attack on Co Down police station

A 47-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a car bomb attack on a Co Down police station in 1998.

The suspect was arrested in Dungannon on Wednesday morning.

Eleven people were injured and extensive damage was caused when the car bomb exploded outside the unmanned police station in Moira on February 20, 1998.

The car had been packed with more than 200kg of explosives.

No group claimed responsibility for the attack.

Last December a 43-year-old man was arrested in connection with the attack, before being released without charge.
