A man arrested in connection with the attempted murder of a police officer in Belfast last month has been released unconditionally.

The 38-year-old was questioned by the PSNI on Thursday.

His arrest followed searches in the city on Tuesday. Three others held in relation to the same operation have also been released.

Cash, electronic devices and suspected Class A and Class B drugs were seized during one of the searches.

The arrests followed the discovery of a bomb found under an officer's car at Shandon Park Golf Club on 1 June.

PSNI Det Insp Anthony Kelly the "investigation has continued at pace".

"By placing this explosive device in a built-up area, the terrorists also put the lives of the officer's family, neighbours and members of the public at serious risk.

"It was extremely lucky that no-one was killed or seriously injured," he added.
