Loyalists stepping up campaign in Antrim

Whilst the media’s focus has been on the activities of dissident republicans in recent months, there are clear signs of a determined loyalist campaign targeting catholics in the town of Antrim.

Recently, numerous catholic homes were targeted by pipe-bombs in a co-ordinated attack accompanied by a threat to all catholics in the majority unionist town. Now the town’s two catholic primary schools have been targeted, with an eight year old pupil unwittingly picking up a device left at St Comgall’s PS.

Not much is known about the organisation laying claim to the attacks- the Real UFF- though perhaps a PSNI statement or subsequent IMC report could shed light on the background of those involved.
