Mortar Found in Area Known for Republicanism

By: Destiny Albritton

Police in Northern Ireland discovered two Mortar-like (or cannon-type) devices in South Armagh, an area known for strong Republican sentiment.

It was suggested that an aircraft was the possible target of the Irish Republican Army, however the target of these devices is still unknown by Irish police.

Many roads are being blocked off for the time being while Irish police use sniffer dogsand metal detectors to weed out other dangerous devices in the area.


According to BBC News, residents in the surrounding area of South Armagh are having to be out of their homes again for the second time tonight.
