A woman arrested over a pipe bomb attack on a community worker’s home was released today, police said.

Detectives will prepare a report on the incident at Glandore Avenue, North Belfast, for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The 20-year old woman was arrested in Newtownabbey yesterday.

She was questioned about the blast – the third attack this year – on Mary Kelly’s home.

Ms Kelly said she may be forced to move.

The device exploded outside the front window of her house at around 1am on Tuesday.

A number of nearby homes were evacuated while Army bomb disposal experts made the area safe.

The bomb, which only partially detonated, badly damaged the window and sill.

Ms Kelly works on a number of cross-community projects in an area marked by sectarian interfaces and was recently honoured by the Community Relations Council (CRC) with an award for exceptional achievement.

A bomb damaged her house in April while vandals smashed her windows in January.
