Real IRA claims responsibility for Derry car bombing


Dissident republican group the Real IRA has said it carried out Monday night's car bomb attack in Londonderry.

The bomb was left close to the Ulster Bank and a row of shops in front of Da Vinci's hotel on the Culmore Road in the city.

It exploded shortly after midnight - about an hour after the warning was given. Dozens of homes were evacuated in the alert.
