A car bomb has exploded near an Army base in Holywood, County Down, forcing the evacuation of several homes.
The blast seems to have been timed to coincide with the precise moment that policing and justice powers devolved from Westminster to Stormont.
It happened at about 0020 BST outside Palace Barracks, where MI5 has its NI headquarters. A warning was given.
Dissident republicans have been blamed for the attack. An elderly man was treated in hospital for minor injuries.

The article also says that "a warning was given". When the IRA were bombing the mainland, the warnings were always coded, and given to the police. This was ALWAYS reported. Now it is simply "a warning was given"... by whom, and to whom? Was it coded?
