RUC/PSNI still clutching with straws confusing

A man has been arrested in connection with a dissident Republican bomb attack on a police officer in Derry last year.

CORDAN: Ardanlee in Derry

The 46-year-old man is being questioned about a bomb placed under the officer’s car in February last year. The device was discovered at Ardanlee in the city’s Culmore area. Described as an UVIED (Under Vehicle Improvised Explosive Device), the bomb exploded as British army technical officers were attempting to defuse it.

Following the bomb attempt, RUC/PSNI detective inspector, Peter McKenna said police believed the ‘New IRA’ was behind what he described as a “cowardly” attack.

Mr McKenna said if the bomb had exploded while the intended target and his family were in the car, the consequences would have been devastating. Yesterday’s arrest is the sixth in connection with the attempted attack. The man was last night being questioned at the RUC/PSNI’s Musgrave serious crime suite under the Terrorism Act.
