DEATH TRAP FOILED.
Twenty kilos of explosives were planted close to a hoax device at an empty hotel in Newcastle, Co Down.
Terrorists planned to detonate the bomb as officers arrived. Inspector Paul McClean added: "A lot of planning went into this deliberate and reckless attempt to kill police officers.
"We were led to believe there was only one device and they anticipated we would seal off the area where the real bomb was hidden."
