Bomb discovered in Northern Ireland

Per the Irish Independent, a large car bomb was discovered by authorities in County Down, Northern Ireland on Saturday. It was destroyed through a series of controlled explosions. A "dissident nationalist organisation" claimed responsibility.

@BenLamothe of London was one of the first to tweet on the incident, and he's been retweeted several times in the last few hours.

The news traveled quickly, but at least one person was surprised it didn't make more noise.
