Three arrests made over bin bomb

Three men have been arrested after a bomb attack in Northern Ireland which injured three children.

The device exploded in a bin in Lurgan, Co Armagh, while police investigated a warning that another bomb had been left at a nearby primary school.

The three children, aged between two and 12, suffered minor injuries on August 14.

Police arrested three men during a search operation in the town on Wednesday. Items were taken away for examination.

Dissident republicans were blamed for planting the bomb which exploded without warning in Lurgan's North Street.
