British Army bomb disposal experts carried out a controlled explosion on a car abandoned outside a police station in the North.
The vehicle was left outside the New Barnsley station in west Belfast last night - the province's latest security alert this week.
About 100 families were evacuated from their homes because of the alert. Police have not said if a bomb was inside the car or if a warning was given.
Yesterday a booby trap bomb was found under a soldier's car in Bangor, Co Down.
Army bomb disposal officers carried out a series of controlled explosions on the device outside the home in the seaside town's Chatsworth area.
And members of the public narrowly escaped injury on Tuesday morning when a car bomb exploded outside a police station in Derry.
A taxi driver had been hijacked in the city and forced to drive his car to the station after a device containing 200lbs of homemade explosive was loaded on board.
Politicians and police have condemned the incidents.
