The World

The names of up to 75 Irish Republican Army suspects may have been leaked by rogue Northern Ireland police and troops to Protestant killer gangs, a member of a nationalist party said in Belfast. “It seems now that this is never-ending,” Seamus Mallon of the Social Democratic and Labor Party said after a constituent was sent a list of suspects and the death threat. The security scandal erupted after the Ulster Freedom Fighters--an outlawed group of Protestant extremists fighting to keep Northern Ireland British--killed 28-year-old Catholic Loughlinn Maginn. He reportedly was identified through stolen intelligence files. The IRA is fighting to end British rule of Northern Ireland.
