Police Say Dissident Republicans Behind Murder Plot In Armagh


Police in the North say dissident republicans are behind a suspected plot to murder officers in Craigavon.

A large bang was heard in the Tullgalley Road area late last night.

Shortly afterwards – it’s claimed a device had been fired at a police patrol, but missed its target.

Police say they don’t know if that’s the case, or if it was planted there to target officers responding to those reports.

A viable device was found – and is still being examined by police and army bomb experts.

Local councillor Thomas Larkham said that its been terrifying for residents that were forced to evacuate.
