The anti-terrorist operation which resulted in the arrests of suspected dissident republicans and the seizure of a large a haul of explosives is one of the most significant strikes by the Special Branch against the renegades for several years.
Among those detained is a senior republican activist who is alleged to be the leader of the most dangerous faction of the Real IRA.
Senior officers are now seeking the go-ahead from the DPP to press charges of directing terrorism against the prime suspect.
