A 16-year-old boy has been arrested by police investigating a dissident republican car bomb attack in north Belfast last week.

An off-duty soldier escaped injury after he spotted the device inside his car in Blackdam Court.

Two men, aged 42 and 34, were also arrested on Saturday.

Two other men - aged 43 and 30 - arrested on Friday have been released without charge. A 41-year-old woman and 40-year-old man are still being held.

The soldier, who does not serve in Northern Ireland, was visiting his girlfriend at the time of the attack.

He noticed the device which did not detonate inside his car.

It is understood it contained a trip wire attached to the seat belt.
