In Belfast, Northern Ireland, a 100-pound time-bomb planted by the IRA explodes in a crowded street, killing six and injuring 146. Police report that some of the victims were lured to the site of the bomb by terrorists by calling in a false report of a bomb nearby, thus causing people to move to where the bomb was actually planted.
According to police:
"This was a deliberate attempt to kill innocent people. The people who planted it must have known that people were being evacuated into its path."
