BELFAST - Two explosions hit Northern Ireland's second largest city of Londonderry on Thursday in what a police source said were believed to be attacks by dissident Irish nationalists.

No injuries were reported.

One blast hit a tourist information office in the center of the city and a second explosion happened near a social services office, also in the city, a police spokesman said.

Coded telephone warnings were received before both attacks, the police source told Reuters.
