We’re getting reports that another firebomb attack has taken place in Ballymurphy allegedly connected with the murder of Gerard Devlin. That brings a total of six fire attacks, though it’s not yet clear if this attack is on a new target or simply the gutting of a house already attacked. It has the smack of a very controlled campaign. Daily Ireland has more of an interview with Devlin’s widow, although it contains no mention of the subsquent attacks.
