Woman bailed in pipe-bomb probe

A 20-year-old woman arrested in connection with a pipe-bomb attack at the home of a community worker has been released on bail.

A device exploded outside the front window of Mary Kelly's house in Belfast’s Glandore Avenue at around 1am last Tuesday.

It was the third time the cross-community worker had been targeted this year.

The bomb partially exploded but badly damaged the window and sill. A number of nearby homes had to be evacuated while Army bomb disposal experts made the area safe.

It is understood the woman was detained by detectives in the Newtownabbey area last Friday.

On Saturday a spokesman for the PSNI said the woman had been released pending a report to the Public Prosecution Service.
