Bomb blast in Northern Ireland

After careful investigation, police have stated that the Bomb attack on officers in Northern Belfast last Saturday, was a “sophisticated device with the intent to kill.”

Though it is too early to assign responsibility for the attacks, Detective Chief Inspector, Karen Baxter, said they were treating it as a terrorist attack.

“Had this device exploded as intended we would’ve had fatalities this morning,” she said.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) found that there had been a significant amount of planning involved, as the bomb was a sophisticated device.
