The World

June 11, 1986

An Irish Republican Army suspect was convicted in London in a 1984 bombing that narrowly missed killing British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and members of her Cabinet. Five others died in the blast, at a hotel in the south coast resort of Brighton. Patrick Magee, 35, denied that he planted the delayed-action time bomb. However, the outlawed IRA claimed responsibility for the blast. Sentencing was postponed.
