Bombs Found in Northern Ireland

Four men were arrested in Northern Ireland on Thursday after authorities discovered a homemade bomb in a car in the city of Londonberry—just one day before U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was due to arrive. A letter bomb was found in another part of Northern Ireland after a man was seen acting suspiciously near a mailbox. Officials said it was “a viable device capable of causing death or serious injury.” They come amidst renewed tensions between Unionist groups, who support ties with Britain, and dissident Republicans.
