Policeman killed in Omagh car bomb attack
BBC News - Policeman killed in Omagh car bomb attack
A 25-year-old police officer has been killed after a bomb exploded under his car in Omagh, County Tyrone.
The device exploded under the vehicle outside his home in Highfield Close, just before 1600 BST on Saturday.
Neighbours rushed to help him and some used fire extinguishers to put out the flames from the explosion. He died at the scene.
He was recently qualified and is the second policeman to be killed since the PSNI was formed out of the RUC in 2001.
Since 2007, dissident republicans have planted dozens of booby-trap bombs under the private cars of police officers.
The bombs have failed to detonate, but two policemen lost their legs in attacks in May 2008 and January 2010.
