Real IRA claims shooting of British soldiers

 

 

ANTRIM, Northern Ireland (Reuters) - The dissident republican group Real IRA claimed responsibility Sunday for killing two British soldiers in Northern Ireland, one of the worst attacks since a 1998 peace deal stemmed years of violence.

 

Gunmen shot the soldiers as they picked up pizzas at the gates of an army base near Antrim Saturday night. Four people, including two pizza delivery men, were wounded.

A caller to the Sunday Tribune newspaper claimed responsibility for the shooting in the name of the South Antrim brigade of the Real IRA.

"He said he made, and the Real IRA made, no apology for targeting British soldiers while they remained what he called occupying the north of Ireland," Suzanne Breen, a journalist at the newspaper, told Sky News.

The Real IRA, a splinter group from the Irish Republican Army, carried out the deadliest single bombing of Northern Ireland´s sectarian "Troubles" in the market town of Omagh in August 1998. Twenty-nine people were killed.

 It is very shocking after 12 years of relative peace.  They were unarmed and off duty

Oi! Don´t you know that the pizza guy was Polish? besides, I´m not in Northern Ireland (I only go shopping there) I´m at a safe distance of 12km from the northern border lol

 

I guess that´s a result of recession, stupid people have way too much time on their hands and go on a kiling spree. I hope the perpetrators are caught and imprisoned for life
