Army explosives experts were called to St Comgall's Primary in Antrim, Northern Ireland, on Monday when an eight-year-old boy, a pupil there, carried a suspected pipe bomb into the classroom. Police confirmed they were treating the object as suspicious. Children were evacuated to a church hall and then sent home. Headteacher Hilary Cush said he was outraged: "It's absolutely crazy. It's unbelievable that innocent children should be caught up in something like this."
