Shoukri brothers in bother?

Many of the papers have dedicated articles in recent days to on-going internal ‘difficulties’ within the UDA. It would appear that the Shoukri brothers have fallen foul of a number of their former ‘colleagues,’ and could be facing expulsion from the organisation in the time ahead.

Whatever about the nature of the argument, a hyped-up UDA in north Belfast and south-east Antrim is about the last thing everybody needs as we approach the Summer, particularly given that many of the sectarian (and indeed non-sectarian) killings and attacks carried out in the post-Agreement era have occurred in this area, including the murder of Thomas Devlin last Summer.
