On Radio 4 news just now, very little information though.
Hope people are ok, I have a lot of friends and family there, it's always worrying when something happens.

Weird that it is up on RTE and nothing on BBC?

I was thinking that.

There have been cases of battery tools going off before on public transport.

We'll know soon enough.
Looking at the photo, I was thinking phone or tool battery. Phone possibly if it is in an insulated bag like that.

It’s quite possible that it could be a lithium battery power pack on a drill or something like that, but it looks more like some kind of deliberate act. There are reports of people with minor facial injuries from flash burns.

Surprised that anyone is injured given that it doesn't even appear to have damaged the plastic bags surrounding it.

I'd suggest it was the best kind of bomb in that it didn't work very well at all
