Strabane: Man held over roadside bomb attack

A 31-year-old man has been arrested by detectives investigating the attempted murder of PSNI officers after an explosion in Strabane.

Police said it was a miracle the roadside bomb, which went off on Tuesday night when three officers were on patrol in the area, killed no one.

The 31-year-old was detained in the Co Tyrone town on Saturday and has been taken to Belfast for questioning.

Meanwhile police have been been granted additional time to question a 20-year-old man who was arrested in connection with the attack on Friday.

Anyone with information about the murder bid can pass it on via the non-emergency 101 number or through Crimestoppers.
