Bomb threats claim by Women on Waves group

The organisation whose ship is at the centre of an abortion controversy on the River Liffey said it has received two bomb threats.

The Women on Waves group said the threats were rang into their offices, although this has yet to be confirmed by gardai.

In a minor incident this morning, one anti-abortion activist jumped on to the ship and raised a banner.

The man shouted that the Irish people had voted no to abortion and that abortion is killing Irish babies. He was quickly removed by security men.

Around 150 members of the media are at the quayside, including camera crews from England, the US, France, Holland and Luxembourg.
