Northern Ireland Police Say ‘Viable’ Bomb Is Defused in Belfast

Oct. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Northern Ireland police said a “substantial, viable” bomb was defused by the British Army in Ardoyne, a Catholic district of north Belfast, late yesterday.

“There is no doubt this device was intended to murder,” Andrew Freeburn, the Police Service of Northern Ireland’s commander for north Belfast, said in a recorded message. “This is a residential area. We could have been looking at a serious tragedy.”
