The World

April 07, 1986

Northern Ireland police raided the headquarters of the main Protestant paramilitary group after extremists burned or stoned the homes of 16 officers and six Roman Catholics. They seized tapes and documents at the Belfast office of the Ulster Defense Assn., which is suspected of helping to organize an unprecedented wave of Protestant anti-police violence. The Protestant militants oppose an accord signed by Britain and the Irish Republic that gives the Roman Catholic republic a consultative role in British-ruled, Protestant-dominated Ulster.
