Army bomb disposal experts were last night dealing with a suspicious object found in a derelict building in Cullyhanna, south Armagh, close to the Irish border.

Police and troops patrolling the area on Thursday cordoned off the building after noticing electrical wiring around a number of oil cans.

Security forces have been on a high state of alert following recent IRA and loyalist attacks. Earlier this week, a 1,000lb van bomb was defused after a lengthy operation in north Belfast.
