October 22, 1987

British and Irish Republic officials met in Belfast for talks on the future of Northern Ireland under the Anglo-Irish accord on the British-ruled province. Ireland's Foreign Minister Brian Lenihan arrived by helicopter for the talks with Britain's Northern Ireland secretary, Tom King, under tight security at Stormont Castle. Tension between London and Dublin has risen as sectarian and political violence have continued, with 75 reported killed so far this year.
