January 05, 2002|Associated Press

COLERAINE, Northern Ireland — A suspected anti-Catholic militant was killed when the pipe bomb he was carrying exploded in his face, police said Friday.

William Moore Campbell, 19, died when the bomb exploded Thursday outside an abandoned house in the northern town of Coleraine. Northern Ireland police said that Campbell lived nearby and that the house was being used by Protestant paramilitary outlaws to store weapons.

Several homes in the mixed Catholic-Protestant neighborhood were evacuated as British army experts examined a second suspected bomb found nearby.
