A booby-trap bomb has been left at the home of a police officer in Derry.
British Army bomb experts defused the device, which was found last night at the home of the woman police officer near Dungiven.
A major security operation is ongoing, with a large section of a road between Dungiven and Limavady sealed off.
Stormont’s First Minister Arlene Foster spoke to the officer this morning.
In a tweet, the DUP leader said: “I wanted to convey our support and utter condemnation of those who sought to harm her & her family. Reckless and futile.
“We salute her bravery and long service to the community.”
Deputy First Minister Michelle O’Neill said: “The attempted murder of a police officer near Dungiven is reprehensible.
“Those involved in this attack will not succeed in their regressive and toxic agenda. All politicians mist united against these reckless actions.”
