Police and politicians condemn Armagh and Antrim bomb finds

Police and politicians in the North are condemning the discovery of two bombs in counties Armagh and Antrim.

A beer keg containing 40 kilograms of explosives was left below the Belfast-Dublin Railway line on the Tullydaggan Road in Lurgan, and a car at the centre of a security alert at Belfast International Airport contained a "viable device".

The vehicle, which was in the long stay car park, also contained flammable liquid.

The North's Justice Minister David Ford said a small minority of people were out to cause misery, but that: "The vast majority of people in Northern Ireland are absolutely horrified (at these events)."
