Pipe Bombs Property Of Unionist Paramilitaries

Antrim Sinn Fein Cllr. Martin Meehan today said that he was in no doubt that the haul of pipe bombs discovered in a disused school in Antrim was the property of unionist paramilitaries.

Cllr. Meehan said:

``I have no doubt that this haul of pipe bombs was the property of unionist paramilitaries in the Antrim area and was destined for use on the local nationalist community.

``Over the past number of years there have been numerous pipe bomb attacks in this area and families have been forced from their homes by loyalists. This find is particularly worrying given the fact that we are now in the run in to the ` marching season.''
