Two gunmen opened fire while attempting to bomb a fund-raiser for IRA prisoners, killing one man and wounding another, police said Sunday. It was the first bombing attempt in Dublin since the 1970s. Police searched for the gunmen who left the 18-pound bomb, which failed to detonate. The Ulster Volunteer Force, an outlawed Protestant paramilitary group in Northern Ireland, claimed responsibility for the Saturday night attack.
