    A car bomb has exploded outside a police station in Londonderry.
    It is understood a taxi driver was forced to bring the device to Strand Road police station early on Tuesday by two men armed with a gun.
    No-one was injured in the explosion, which happened near an old people's home and an apartment block.
    The explosion at about 0320 BST damaged the police station's perimeter wall and a number of nearby businesses. Police said a telephoned warning was given.
    SDLP Mayor of Derry Colum Eastwood blamed dissident republicans for the attack.
    "Police didn't even have time to evacuate a nursing home or apartments right beside the police station.
    "We are very lucky today not to be talking about fatalities. It's an attack not just on the police but the entire community."

  2. Surely there is some mistake - the bad guys are now the good guys and all the weapons have gone...

    Quick note to the politicians - leopards don't change their spots FFS!

    ..and I'd be very surprised if Adams and McGuiness etc don't know exactly who is doing this...
