Courthouse Bombed in Northern Ireland

A massive car bomb has exploded outside a Northern Ireland courthouse, in what is seen as the latest threat to the fragile peace process in the troubled region.

The car was backed into the gates of the heavily fortified court at 2240 GMT in the city of Newry, County Down, some 35 miles south of the British province's capital Belfast.

Police said it was "a sheer miracle" that no one had been killed or wounded by the huge blast, which was heard two miles (three kilometers) away and is believed to have caused considerable damage.'
