June 19, 1986

A bomb planted in a hijacked van exploded outside a police station near Belfast, Northern Ireland, injuring six people. Police had received a warning and had left the station, but the bomb exploded before residents could be evacuated. Police said they suspected the predominantly Catholic Irish Republican Army. In a separate attack, officers were fired on as they investigated a vehicle theft in a Protestant area of Belfast.
