Home damaged in bomb blast

A MAN escaped injury yesterday when a pipe bomb exploded after being thrown at his home. The house, on the Wheatfield estate in the border village of Muff in Co Donegal, was targeted at 1.30 yesterday morning.

The man, the only occupant of the house at the time, escaped unharmed while damage was confined to the kitchen of the two-storey house. This is the second attack on the house in recent months. Dissident republicans are suspected to be behind the attack.
