Dublín, Irish Army bomb experts have disarmed several potentially lethal devices, and the police have arrested six men amid heightened security before next week’s visit by Prince Charles of Britain and his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles.

A police spokesman confirmed yesterday (Thursday) that officers from two units that specialize in investigating terrorist organizations had conducted 20 raids a day earlier, based on intelligence gathered on dissident groupings.

In addition to pipe bombs, they found bomb-making components, a firearm and ammunition.

The royal couple will arrive next Tuesday for a four-day visit.
