London - Police in Northern Ireland say they're investigating a bomb blast that injured three children.

Officers said a device exploded on Saturday close to a school in Lurgan, about 35km west of Belfast.

Police were evacuating homes in the area following reports of a separate device when a bomb exploded without warning in Kilmaine Street. Two 12-year-old children and a two-year old suffered cuts caused by flying debris.

Police said two other suspicious objects in the area were being checked by army specialists. 

Dissident Irish Republican groups have carried out a series of recent bomb attacks in Northern Ireland, but have rarely been successful in killing or injuring their targets.
