A car bomb blamed on Irish Republican Army dissidents damaged a hotel, bank and other businesses but caused no injuries Tuesday in the Northern Ireland city of Londonderry, the sixth such attack this year in the British territory.

Analysts said the middle-of-the-night blast — which blew out window frames and glass in several buildings, doing particular damage to the bank — appeared to have been timed to undermine the city's major Sinn Fein politician, Martin McGuinness.

McGuinness, who is also the senior Catholic in Northern Ireland's cross-community government, was attending the annual conference Tuesday of the ruling Conservative Party — long a target for IRA violence before the outlawed group's 1997 cease-fire.
