Bomb parts found in park in Northern Ireland

London – Police in Northern Ireland say they have found “a significant terrorist hide,” including explosives and bomb parts, buried in a rural park. The Police Service of Northern Ireland said Sunday that detectives uncovered the stash at Carnfunnock Country Park, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) northeast of Belfast, after a passer-by reported a suspicious object.

Police say officers found several buried plastic barrels containing “a significant amount of bomb making components including partially constructed devices and a small quantity of explosives.”

On Friday, a prison officer was injured when a booby-trap bomb exploded under his van in Belfast.
