Real IRA admits court bomb

The dissident republican group, the Real IRA, has said it was behind a bomb at Belfast’s Laganside courts complex. The huge firebomb found in a van left outside the Laganside Courts was defused by Army technicians on Wednesday night. A man was forced to drive the van from his home in north Belfast by three masked men to the courts at Oxford Street. The alarm was raised shortly after 2300 GMT. The bomb was a blast incendiary device containing three pipe bombs and 100 litres of petrol, along with a timing unit. It is the type of device which police say has been used in the past by dissident republicans who are opposed to the Good Friday Agreement and have been linked to a number of attacks, both in Northern Ireland and England.
