Car bomb diffused in Ireland

Posted: Updated:

On Saturday Northern Irish police defused a car bomb, authorities say was likely intended for a police station.

The device was found close to where G-8 leaders will meet at a summit in June.

Bomb disposal experts diffused the explosive after a security operation that lasted almost 36 hours.

Officials say the bomb was en route to a police station in a town nearby and would have killed or injured people if it had not been intercepted.
