A man’s been arrested in County Antrim in connection with the attempted double bomb attack near Derry City Council’s offices last year.
The man has been taken to the Antrim Serious Crime Suite for questioning.
The 40 year old man was detained this morning by detectives from the Serious Crime Branch who are heading up the investigation into the incident, and follows the release of video footage of a suspect yesterday.
Just before 11pm on Thursday 20 September 2012, a Foyle Search and Rescue volunteer found a rucksack on the river embankment close to the back of the Derry City Council offices. On examining the bag, she found a pipe bomb device.
Police were called, the area was sealed off, and shortly after their arrival, police found a secondary device attached to a bicycle chained to a railing just a short distance away.
Yesterday, police issued a video clip and images of the suspected bomber, along with photos of the rucksack and a similar bicycle.
