Bombs hit Londonderry in Northern Ireland by: From correspondents in Dublin From: AP January 20, 2012 11:19AM
TWO bombs planted by Irish Republican Army dissidents have detonated in the Northern Ireland city of Londonderry, but no injuries were reported as police quickly evacuated the area following phoned warnings.
Martina Anderson, a former Irish Republican Army member who represents Londonderry for the Irish nationalist party Sinn Fein, said one bomb left outside the city's main tourist office exploded as about 75 elderly residents of a nursing home were still being evacuated about 25 metres away.

She said IRA dissidents "need to come forward and explain how they believe this achieved anything, other than the disruption of vulnerable old people's lives".

Chief Superintendent Stephen Martin, the police commander in Northern Ireland's second-largest city, said much of central Londonderry would be sealed off tomorrow so that police could comb the bomb sites for forensic clues.

Next year it won't be known as a bombing. For the city of culture 2013 it will be known as performance art.

It may not be politically correct to say so and it certainly is neither kosher nor halal, but I prefer pig's trotters, to bog trotters any day!

Since when did 'Free Derry' reacquire the prefix 'London'? A shocking betrayal of the sacrifices shown by those brave Irish Socialists of yesteryear. I suspecy Martin will be on the phone to the editor in due course...

Is "be on the phone to" a euphamism for explaining and emphasising the facts using a black and decker? Allegedly of course and assuming he still does that sort of stuff now he is a respected politician, elder statesman, tout and all that sort of thing.

It Suits Sinn feins needs for something to go bang every now and then.
Keeps NI in the headlines and allows them to be rent a quote and fool some that there a moderate political party and hopefully forget the past deeds of many of there members.
Also keeps the sales of Gerry's books ticking along nicely.

To be honest, if it hadn't already been in the article before I did the cut and paste I would have added it.
