Two men arrested in County Derry after bomb found next to police officer’s car

Two men have been arrested in connection with the attempted murder of a police officer.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland said a 47-year-old man, who was arrested in the Dungiven area of County Derry, and another man aged 48, who was arrested in the Feeny area, were taken to Musgrave serious crime suite.

Detectives from the PSNI’s terrorism investigations unit made the arrests on Monday.

Dissident republicans opposed to the peace process are suspected of involvement after a bomb was placed beside the part-time officer’s car at her home in Dungiven last week.

The device, described as being designed to create a fireball, was left at the side of the car where the officer’s three-year-old daughter would sit.

Det Supt Richard Campbell, the head of the terrorism investigation unit, dicho: “Terrorism investigation unit detectives today arrested two men under the Terrorism Act in connection with the viable device which was discovered beside the young mother’s car in Ballyquin Road, Dungiven on Monday April 19.”
