Officers have escaped injury in a bomb attack in Northern Ireland, which police say was a "deliberate attempt" to lure them there "to murder them".

Irish foreign minister Simon Coveney condemned the attempt to "injure or kill" police officers.

Officers and bomb disposal units were already at the scene to investigate another, even larger device nearby.

Martin added that uncertainty over the impact of Britain's departure from the European Union and Northern Ireland's suspended government had coincided with the attacks and other tensions.

'We are extremely fortunate that the actions of officers first on scene meant there was not serious injury or death'.

"I ask that anyone who may be able to help our investigation and identify the perpetrators of this sinister and potentially murderous attack to please come forward".
