Police seize bomb-making equipment

15/04/2005 - 07:38:10

Bomb-making equipment has been seized during raids in Northern Ireland, police said today.

The find was made when a number of houses in the Co Antrim village of Bushmills were searched last night.

Police said the operation was part of an ongoing investigation into the activities of loyalist paramilitaries in the area.

No explosives were found but officers took away substances which, when mixed together, would be explosive, said the spokesman.

A blank firing pistol and other items which could be of use to terrorists, including balaclavas and combat-style, clothing were also seized.

No arrests were made during the operation.
