BELFAST - Two bombs were defused in Northern Ireland, police said on Saturday, blaming dissident Irish nationalists opposed to a 1998 peace deal that largely ended violence in the British-controlled province.

One of the bombs was discovered under a parked car in Belfast where 80 people were moved from their homes for five hours overnight before the device was made safe by the army.

Army bomb disposal experts also defused a second explosive devise which was left in an abandoned vehicle in the town of Newry, not far from the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

Police investigating dissident activity also found guns and ammunition in the mainly Catholic Ardoyne area of Belfast.
