Irish authorities find parcel bomb similar to UK packages

The suspicious package in Limerick was discovered by staff shortly after 6:00am on Friday morning.

The envelope containing the viable explosive was discovered in the National Return Letter Centre in Limerick at around 6am yesterday and led to an immediate evacuation of the building.

He said that the incident was "a terrible outcome of the uncertainty surrounding Brexit where in the context of the heightened tensions in Northern Ireland, on the island of Ireland, people have taken it upon themselves to send letter bombs - an absolutely despicable act".

A parcel bomb found at an Irish postal depot appears identical to a series of devices sent to Great Britain, police in Ireland have said.

One of the devices partially burned when opened.

British police said those claiming responsibility had indicated that five devices were sent and Irish Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan was quoted as saying the postage stamp on the Limerick parcel suggested it "could well be the fifth".

White postal bags holding small bombs were sent to London's Heathrow and City airports and Waterloo, the capital's busiest train station, on March 5.

The depot had to be evacuated during the security alert.

One more suspicious package was received at Glasgow University.

Police believe it's linked to a number of similar devices sent to locations in the United Kingdom earlier this month.

On March 12 a group calling itself the "IRA" - the Irish Republican Army - claimed responsibility for four small parcel bombs mailed to London and Glasgow.

The package was "viable", Ireland's defence forces said in a statement, adding that it was "made safe" by ordnance experts before being handed to detectives for examination.

The "IRA" said it was responsible for placing a vehicle bomb which detonated outside a courthouse in Londonderry in January.
