Irish Republican Terrorist Group Preparing For New Campaign

A new dissident IRA group has expelled scores of members in a crackdown on informers.

The Sunday Times reports that the umbrella group for Republican terrorists is taking stern action.

The paper’s crime correspondent John Mooney claims that the new IRA group has stood down certain active-service units as part of a purge against suspected informers.

He says that command of the organisation has been transferred to republican hard-liners based in Northern Ireland ahead of a new reign of terror.
