Sunday World staff member injured after sulphuric acid sent in post

By Conor McCrave

A staff member at the Sunday World has been injured after receiving a package at its Dublin office containing Sulphuric Acid.

Gardai have now sought help from Interpol officials in tracking down the person responsible for sending the package which came from Spain via Germany.

The package was delivered to the offices of INM at the end of last month.

The Sunday World has offices in Dublin and Belfast, and is in the same newspaper group as the Belfast Telegraph.

An investigation is underway to determine whether the package was sent in error or if it was a deliberate attempt to cause harm.

Police in Spain trying to track down the sender have been liaising with the parcel distribution company.

Full details of the incident can be found in today's Sunday World.
