Australia - POLICE expect to have a clearer picture this week of what type of bomb was used in an explosion outside the Bandidos bikie clubhouse in Dunn Crescent, Dandenong.

Detective Sergeant Lionel Joseph from the Arson and Explosive Squad said today investigators had returned to the scene after initially being told of the explosion yesterday.

"We're still piecing together the bits that we found so certainly our examiners are taking a close look at it," Sgt Joseph said.

"We're hoping to get results back by Monday or Tuesday."


Sgt Joseph said the explosion, which occurred overnight on Wednesday, was large enough to smash windows of neighbouring businesses in the industrial area.

"It could easily have resulted in death if somebody had been nearby when it detonated ... if a security guard had have been checking any places around that area at the time," he said.

Sgt Joseph said police were notified by a neighbouring business owner of the damage yesterday morning.

It is unclear whether the Dandenong bombing is linked to other bikie-related incidents.

On June 17, a house in Doveton was sprayed with bullets, with a Comancheros and Rebels associate believed to be the target. Several children were sleeping inside.

On June 14 a machine gun or semi-automatic weapon was used in the attack on the Angels' Darkside chapter in Seaford, just months after the clubhouse was established.

Police have urged the bikies to call a ceasefire before someone gets hurt.
