TWO MEN ARRESTED in connection with the attempted bombing of a Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) officer’s car in east Belfast over the weekend have been released this evening.
The two men, aged 34 and 25, were arrested in Belfast on Tuesday and questioned in relation to the incident.
They have now been released unconditionally, the PSNI said this evening.
The off-duty police officer discovered the bomb under his car outside his home on the Upper Newtownards Road in east Belfast on Sunday afternoon.
He had been about to get into to the car with his wife and children to go for lunch before he discovered the device with the PSNI treating the incident as attempted murder.
