Four held over Shell HQ bomb plot

Four people were arrested over a foiled bomb attack on energy giant Shell’s Irish headquarters.

The four were being questioned by officers probing the planting of an improvised explosive at Shell’s offices on Leeson Street in September – the scene of dozens of protests over the controversial Corrib gas project. All four were being held under the state’s anti-terror laws at separate city centre garda stations. and its sister non-profit websites,,,,,, and are owned by John Donovan.
