      Fra Open Source Brief:

      Northern Ireland: New IRA Suspected in Car Bomb Attack. Police in Northern Ireland suspect that the New IRA was behind a car bombing outside a courthouse in Derry on Saturday. Two men were arrested on Saturday evening, and two others were taken into custody on Sunday. The device exploded as police, who had spotted the suspicious vehicle, were evacuating the area. No one was injured. The so-called “dissident” republicans reject the Belfast Agreement and advocate the use of violence to achieve their aim of a united Ireland. The New IRA is believed to have been responsible for a number of attacks in Derry in recent years, including an attempt to kill a police officer by planting a bomb under his car outside his home in 2017.

        I går søkte nord-irsk politi etter våpen i Derry. I opptøyene som fulgte ble en 29 år gammel journalist, Lyra McKee, skutt og døde senere av skadene. Skytteren var sannsynligvis New IRA eller sympatisør.

            Beklager og beklager. "In the course of attacking the enemy Lyra McKee was tragically killed while standing beside enemy forces". De beklaget at de traff en uskyldig, men ikke at de angrep det de kaller 'fienden'.

              Vi burde muligens hatt en egen tråd om Irland på Milforum, men plasserer det her inntil videre: Sinn Fein ser ut til å gjøre det bra i valget i Irland.

              NY Times skriver:
              Sinn Fein poised to enter Irish government
              Preliminary results from Ireland’s national elections over the weekend show that Sinn Fein, a party that was once the political wing of the Irish Republican Army, is on the doorstep of joining a coalition government.
              In doing so, Sinn Fein would break the hold that two center-right parties — Fianna Fail and Fine Gael — have held on the country’s politics for 90 years.
              “This is changing the shape and mold of Irish politics,” Mary Lou McDonald, Sinn Fein’s leader, told reporters in Dublin. “This is not a transient thing — this is just the beginning.”
              Why this matters: Sinn Fein has long been ostracized over its ties to sectarian violence. But many younger voters don’t remember that. Instead, they see the party as the only one responding to their day-to-day grievances on issues like soaring rental prices and corporate tax breaks.
              By the numbers: Fianna Fail was on track to win about 45 seats in the 160-seat Parliament, followed by Sinn Fein with 37 seats and Fine Gael with 36 seats. The final results are expected today or tomorrow, probably kicking off weeks of coalition negotiations over who will control Parliament.
