From a report in the LA Times about Monday’s terrorist boming in Manchester in the UK:
Ironically, the bomb appeared to have been detonated just around the corner from where the Irish Republican Army unleashed its biggest-ever bomb on the British mainland in 1996. Then, people were given 90 minutes’ warning before 3,300 pounds of explosives loaded into a truck shattered the city; on Monday, there was no such warning.
