Guerrillas in Northern Ireland fired 18 mortar rounds across a river into a police station and training center, wounding 30 people, and the outlawed Irish Republican Army claimed responsibility. The attack, in the town of Enniskillen, 85 miles west of Belfast, was launched from a parked truck carrying homemade mortar tubes that were set to fire automatically. The wounded, none of them seriously hurt, included 19 police officers and cadets and 11 civilians.
