Celtic parcel bombs 'despicable'

"Viable" parcel bombs have been sent to Celtic manager Neil Lennon and two high-profile fans of the Glasgow club, sources have told the BBC.

Sources said the liquid-based devices, sent in the past month, appear to have been intended to "kill or maim".

The devices were found at various locations in the west of Scotland.

Det Supt John Mitchell of Strathclyde Police condemned the act as "despicable and cowardly".
