New Semtex used in Belfast bomb attack, claim dissidents

Dissident republicans claim to have used newly acquired Semtex in a bomb attack on police in west Belfast.

A mortar was fired from a tube attached to railings at the City Cemetery at around 22:30 GMT on Friday.

It was not possible to verify the claim that a new batch of Semtex was used as the police would not comment on the nature of the device.

BBC News NI's Home Affairs Correspondent Vincent Kearney reports.
