DUBLIN -A homemade bomb was found in the luggage compartment of a bus in Ireland on Tuesday and blown up by the army in a controlled detonation, the military said, hours before the first state visit by Britain's Queen Elizabeth.

Ireland has mounted its biggest security operation ahead of a visit steeped in symbolism and gestures designed to underline how warm neighborly relations have replaced centuries of animosity.
