Police arrest three men during west Belfast covert security operation

DETECTIVES have charged two men following a covert security operation in west Belfast.

Belfast Daily understands police were monitoring the activities of dissident republicans when they swooped on Saturday.

The operation is believed to have foiled a possible attack on a passing PSNI mobile patrol.

The men, aged 38 and 25, have been charged with possession of explosives and will face Belfast Magistrates’ Court on Monday morning.

The charges follow a security alert at a children’s play park at White Rise in the Lagmore estate on the outskirts of west Belfast early on Saturday morning.

A number of items, including a suspected pipe bomb, were removed from the scene.

A 27-year-old man also arrested in relation to the incident has been released.

About a dozen families, totalling 100 people, were moved from their homes during the alert.
