MI5 base bomb suspect is released

A man arrested by detectives investigating a dissident republican car bomb attack on MI5's Northern Ireland headquarters was released without charge yesterday.

The 34-year-old was detained in the Dunmurry area of west Belfast on Saturday.

On April 12 the so-called Real IRA forced a taxi driver to ferry the bomb to Palace Barracks in Holywood, Co Down, a military base which includes the MI5 facility.

The bombing was timed to coincide with the devolution of policing and justice powers from Westminster to the Assembly.
