I.R.A. claim double bomb attack
The following is a statement given to a Newry paper by a spokesperson for Óglaigh na hÉireann (whom the media refer to as the Real IRA) and forwarded anonymously to a member of the editorial board of The Sovereign Nation.
"On Sunday 15th July an active service unit of Óglaigh na hÉireann planted a bomb in the Upper Fathom Road area of Newry in the vicinity of the railway line. A booby trapped anti personnel device was also left in the area with the intention of killing members of the RUC/PSNI, only they know how lucky they were. We reiterate our call to civilians to keep their distance from crown force personnel and facilities as more IRA attacks are imminent"
