bombed truck

Market Street, Manchester, England - 15 June 1996. At 11:17 am a 3,300-lb (1,500 kg) truck bomb was detonated on one of the cities busiest streets, creating the billowing smoke plume seen. Just 90-minutes prior the IRA had given warning, prompting Greater Manchester Police to evacuate some 75,000 people. Over 200 were injured in the event, but none killed. It was the largest peacetime bomb ever detonated in Great Britain.
