Daylight saving time thwarts bomber:

A mix-up with daylight saving time may have caused a car bomb to blow up in the face of a bumbling bomber in Dublin.

The unidentified bomber was seen fleeing from the wreckage of a ruined Volvo SUV on Sunday evening, while "dripping in blood" after the device that was attached to the vehicle went off early.

Clocks in Ireland were turned ahead on Sunday night.

"It would appear that the bomber got his timings wrong. It could be a case where he didn't put his watch forward on Sunday [at 1am] and the timer went off too soon," the Daily Mirror reported.
