Car bomb linked to Irish dissidents
BIRMINGHAM, England -- A car bomb explosion in the central English city of Birmingham was probably the work of the outlawed anti-British group the Real IRA, police said Sunday.
The device partially exploded in a busy area late Saturday but caused no serious injuries.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the explosion but police said it bore the hallmarks of Real IRA, an Irish dissident group that has carried out several attacks in Britain.
"This fits a pattern of events involving Irish Republican dissident terrorist groups, probably the Real IRA," said Assistant Chief Constable of Birmingham Police Chris Sims.
