Police worried in NI as bomb goes off in Lurgan.

Police in Northern Ireland say they're increasingly worried by the tactics of dissident republicans after a bomb went off in County Armagh at the weekend, injuring three young children.

A Chief Inspector said police received a vague warning suggesting a bomb had been left at a primary school when the device was a few streets away. It happened a day before the 12th anniversary of the Real IRA Omagh attack which killed 29 people.

The BBC's Ireland correspondent Mark Simpson reports.
