Man held over Co Armagh bomb blast

A man has been arrested in connection with a bomb blast in Northern Ireland which injured three children.

The 27-year-old was detained on Thursday as part of a planned search in Craigavon following the explosion in Lurgan, Co Armagh.

Dissident republicans were blamed for planting the device, which detonated without warning in a bin in the town's North Street on August 14.

Children aged between two and 12 suffered minor injuries.

Three other men arrested in connection with the bomb were released last week.
