Speaking earlier following the Remembrance Day Service at Enniskillen, Mr Brokenshire said:

I condemn unreservedly those who are responsible for the placing of the device in Omagh earlier this morning. It is a despicable act on the day that we gather to honour those brave men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Let me be clear there is no place in society for these faceless people who want to drag us back to the dark days of Northern Ireland’s past.’‬
