A 55 year old man has been arrested as he had multiple equipment in his home to create explosives. The Dublin police found a heavy bomb last Saturday in the Irish capital city Dublin.
There are speculations that the bomb was crafted to hit GIRO, as GIRO would start on the following day.
The explosive consisted of fertilizer in a metal drum. The bomb was not armed and was of the same type as earlier bombs of the Provisional IRA, the Irish Republican paramilitary organization that fought against the British in Northern Ireland.
