Two Soldiers Killed in Ireland

Tw British soldiers from Antrim, Northern Ireland were shot and killed Sunday by a group calling themselves the "Real IRA." This is the first killing of Britsh soldiers here since 1997. This group "carried out the worst single atrocity of over 30 years of violence in Northern Ireland when it bombed the County Tyrone town of Omagh, killing 29 people, in August 1998." The IRA has been assumed to be dead after being swallowed up in the current peace process by Sinn Fein- their political arm.
