Paramilitary group blamed for new violence in Northern Ireland

Catholic World News - June 22, 2011

The Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF), a pro-British paramilitary group, has been blamed by police for a new spate of violence in Northern Ireland.

The violence that erupted in Belfast on June 20, targeting Catholic churches and homes, continued on June 21. Although UVF members had theoretically handed over or destroyed their weapons, law-enforcement authorities said that the group was responsible for the latest bloodshed—either because UVF members began it or because they lacked the power to curtail more extreme groups.
