Has all hell broken loose?

As if the weekends event wasn’t enough, today we have had two security alerts in two different areas of Northern Ireland (Lurgan and Cookstown) with reports tonight of a policeman being shot in Lurgan.

Has all hell broken loose?

Obviously a group or individual has yet to claim responsibility for any of today’s events but something is seriously going on.

Update: BBC report one dead. The Times Online reporting that it happened in a predominantly Catholic area of Craigavon. One other person injured.

Further update: Police confirm officer fatally wounded. Lurgan estate cornered off; condemnation all round.
