The World

January 02, 1986

One minute into the new year, Irish Republican Army guerrillas killed two policemen and wounded a third in an ambush in Northern Ireland that the outlawed IRA said launched a renewed campaign against British forces. Police said three hooded guerrillas detonated a five-pound bomb from a street-corner trash can as the victims walked by. It was triggered by remote control from a house where the IRA men had held a family for six hours. The attack occurred in Armagh, 35 miles from Belfast.
