DUBLIN — Northern Ireland police seized a dissident IRA bomb packed into a beer keg Saturday and were inspecting a potential car bomb parked outside Belfast International Airport, the latest efforts to undermine peace in the British territory.

Police said British Army experts who dismantled the beer-keg bomb found 40 kilograms (90 pounds) of explosive inside.

A pedestrian spotted the keg bomb underneath a rail bridge in the town of Lurgan, where Irish Republican Army dissidents have a base of operations. The threat forced rail passengers on Dublin-Belfast services to be transferred to buses for the Northern Ireland half of their journeys Friday night and all day Saturday.
