In Northern Ireland, before Biden’s visit, bombs were found in a cemetery.

Homemade bombs were found at a cemetery in Londonderry, Northern Ireland, local police said, as the incident took place amid preparations for a visit by US President Joe Biden.

“On Tuesday, April 11, during a public safety operation at the city cemetery in the Creggan area, the police found four pipe bombs,” the statement said.


Explosive devices were neutralized and sent for examination.


Last week, police in Northern Ireland warned of the danger of terrorist attacks ahead of the visit of Biden and British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.

There are demonstrations in Northern Ireland marking the 25th anniversary of the signing of the Belfast Agreement. On Monday, protesters in Londonderry threw several Molotov cocktails at a police car. The next day, unknown people used incendiary bombs, stones and bottles: two cars were damaged, the security forces were not injured.

The Belfast Agreement signed in 1998 gave rise to the process of political settlement in Northern Ireland. The terrorist activity of the “Irish Republican Army” began to decline.
