Markets reopen following a lockdown in north Dublin as authorities focus on the threat posed by Tarkov.
The lockdown was imposed following the discovery of a potential new device in the area of Dublin Road, Northgate, which is close to the border with North Westmeath.
A manhunt has been launched and police have sealed off the area, while residents have been advised to avoid any movement of vehicles or pedestrians.
There are concerns about the potential for a second attack as authorities continue to assess the device.
“There is no information to suggest that this is an imminent threat,” a spokeswoman for the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said.
“At this stage we are not able to say what the exact cause of this incident is.”
There are currently about 500 people in the Dublin-Westmeath area of north Dublin, where Tarkom was found.
The police operation has seen three people arrested, one of whom was found at the scene, while a second man was found in a vehicle at the area.
A second man, who is believed to be in his 20s, was arrested at his home and was taken to hospital.
There have been no reports of injuries.
“Our focus is to find a suspect and arrest him as quickly as possible,” a senior police officer said.
“There are no further details to share at this stage.”
The area is being closed to the public for the time being.
“This is a significant and complex investigation,” a spokesperson for the Northern Ireland Police said.
There were no reports that anyone was injured.
