A pipe bomb has been discovered at the family home of a press photographer in Northern Ireland.
Mark Pearce from Mayobridge near Newry in Co Down has worked as a photographer for over 20 years.
His family was woken by police shortly after midnight at their home in Carraig Crosain. Six homes in their street were evacuated.
Army bomb disposal officers dealt with the viable bomb which had been left outside Mr Pearce's front door. His two children were in the house at the time.
Residents were allowed to return to their homes at about 05.20am.
Police have appealed for information about the attack.
