Police in the North say the vehicle used in the explosion in Derry last night was hijacked in the city a short time before it happened.
They say they received a ten minute warning about the device which was left at the courthouse.
The blast happened on Bishop Street at ten past eight. Meanwhile, Tánaiste Simon Coveney has said that there is “no place for such acts of terror”. DUP leader Arlene Foster has also condemned the attack.
