A bomb exploded without warning outside a village police station in Ulster last night. The station in Tempo, Co Fermanagh, was unmanned at the time and there were no reports of injuries. Police said a van by the station burst into flames, but were unsure whether it had contained a bomb or been used to launch some sort of device. The blast came hours after it was confirmed that SDLP leader John Hume and Sinn Fein's Gerry Adams had held more talks on the peace process.
