Two men have been arrested in Dublin over the attempted murder of a policeman in Northern Ireland in 2015.

Gardai detained the pair, aged 29 and 32, after the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) sought their extradition.

The arrests were in connection with a bomb discovered attached to a PSNI officer's vehicle in the village of Eglinton on the outskirts of Derry city in June 2015.

The officer's wife was also a member of the force.

The men are wanted in Northern Ireland on suspicion of attempted murder and possession of explosives with intent to endanger life, the PSNI said, and they were detained under a European Arrest Warrant.
