The World

Guerrillas in Northern Ireland shot and killed a police officer and wounded another in an ambush, and a car bomb killed a post office manager outside Belfast’s main postal sorting office, police said. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks, which occurred 70 miles apart and within minutes of each other, around 7 p.m. The police officers had just come off duty and were traveling to Enniskillen in County Fermanagh when their private car was raked with gunfire. Authorities said the postal manager apparently had no connection with security forces.
