PSNI arrest man over blast which injured children

A man was arrested today in connection with a bomb blast in the North which injured three children.

The 27-year-old was detained as part of a planned search in Craigavon following the explosion in Lurgan, Co Armagh.

Dissident republicans were blamed for planting the device, which detonated without warning in a bin in the town’s North Street on August 14.

Children aged between two and 12 suffered minor injuries.

Three other men arrested in connection with the bomb were released last week.
