Dissidents blamed for bomb under policeman's car in Belfast


A viable bomb placed under a serving police officer's car in Belfast was a murder attempt by dissident republican paramilitaries, the police have said.

The unexploded device was discovered on the Upper Newtownards Road at about 14:00 GMT on Sunday.

The BBC's Julian O'Neill said the officer had spotted the bomb as he was about to take his wife and children out for lunch.
