Police in Northern Ireland have charged a 22-year-old man with possession of explosives with intent to endanger life.
The suspect was arrested in the Shaw's Road area of West Belfast at around 11pm on Thursday evening.
Officers seized a holdall containing an improvised explosive device (IED).
Area Commander for West Belfast, Chief Inspector Anthony McNally, said "We know only too well the death and destruction such devices can cause.
"And there is no doubt that the intention of those behind this device was an attempt to kill police officers who serve this community on a daily basis.
"Their intended actions can only be described as ruthless and mindless and show total disregard for the people in this community. This discovery has undoubtedly saved lives or serious injury.
"I commend all of the officers involved in this investigation and I would encourage the community to continue to work with us to keep everyone safe."
During a follow up search operation in the Lenadoon Avenue area, police discovered a pipe bomb device and a quantity of ammunition.
The 22-year-old is due to appear at Belfast Magistrates' Court on Monday.
