Six hoax bombs found at Belfast City Cemetery

Police have found six hoax bombs during a security alert at Belfast City Cemetery in the west of the city.

Five of the devices were found in a pillow case and another near-by.

Part of the cemetery was closed during the alert and one controlled explosion was carried out by the Army.

Police have described the find as significant and said the devices were to be used in other areas to cause as much fear and disruption as possible.
