The Irish Republican Army called a radio station in Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland, to confirm that it planted a bomb that exploded early Saturday in a London trash can. No one was injured in the blast. The Combined Loyalist Military Command, an umbrella group for Protestant guerrillas, meanwhile issued a statement in Belfast warning against further IRA attacks. The IRA ended a 17-month cease-fire Feb. 9 with a London bombing that killed two people and injured dozens.
