IRA warning over resorts

Saturday 14 August 1993 23:02

THE IRA warned yesterday that holiday resorts were 'priority targets' for its bombing campaign in Britain, as it admitted responsibility for a series of incendiary devices at Bournemouth. The terrorist group claimed that 'only a technical difficulty' prevented the destruction of Bournemouth pier on Friday.

In Londonderry, a bomb exploded hours before 12,000 Loyalist Apprentice Boys were due to march close by.
