Rocket launcher find in empty house

A RUSSIAN-MADE rocket launcher – a weapon once used by the IRA before the Provisionals declared an end to their armed campaign – has been found at an unoccupied house in west Belfast.

Security chiefs believe the RPG-7 device and a warhead were being stored by dissident republicans in preparation for an attack on a police patrol in the city.
