Pipe bomb found in Armagh security alert
A pipe bomb has been discovered during a security alert in Armagh.
The device was found in the Alexander Avenue area of the city this morning and taken away for further examination.
A number of homes were evacuated during the alert which lasted for over three hours.
Chief Inspector Davy Beck said:"I would like to condemn the people behind this object. It had the potential to kill or maim anyone who was near it if it had went off and I believe the vast majority of the community here do not want this dangerous activity in their area."
