BELFAST INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. PIPE BOMB NEL PARCHEGGIO DA UN ANNO
La Toyota Carina con a bordo una pipe bomb sarebbe passata ‘inosservata’ per quasi un anno
Le speculazioni secondo cui l’ordigno esplosivo a bordo di una Toyota Carina potrebbe essere rimasto per quasi un anno nel parcheggio a ‘lungo termine’ al Belfast International Airport senza destare alcun sospetto, sono state giudicate ‘inutili in questo momento’. Questo è quanto si evince da un comunicato divulgato dal direttivo dell’aereoporto.
“La PSNI sta continuando a indagare le circostanze esatte in merito all’incidente al Belfast International Airport di Sabato 30 ottobre”.
“Dato che l’incidente è attualmente oggetto di un’indagine di polizia, l’aeroporto nulla aggiungerà a ciò che la polizia ha già detto.”

Airport device speculation ‘unhelpful’ (UTV)
There are growing concerns that a car containing a viable explosive device may have been sitting in the long stay car park at Belfast International Airport for almost a year.
A pipe bomb and suspected flammable liquid was found in the grey-coloured Toyota Carina car at the centre of a security alert in the airport grounds at the weekend.
Police said airport staff spotted the suspicious vehicle in the long stay car park at around 2.30pm on Saturday. It was removed for further forensic tests in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Flights were not affected by the incident.
In a statement, the airport said speculation about the length of time the car and the device stayed unnoticed in the car park was “unhelpful at this time”.
“The PSNI are continuing to investigate the exact circumstances around the incident at Belfast International Airport on Saturday 30 October”, the airport said.
“As the incident is the subject of an active police investigation, the airport will not be adding to what the Police have already said. Speculation as to the events surrounding the incident are unhelpful at this time.”
Police said they would not comment on the matter.
Detectives have appealed for anyone who noticed the Toyota Carina carrying the registration number PDZ 2001 in the long stay car park at the airport to contact them.
Another device containing over 40kg of explosives in a beer keg was also made safe in Lurgan, Co Armagh on Saturday.
Dissident republicans are being blamed for both attacks.
