Two killed in Belfast

BELFAST (P) - Tough British
paratroopers killed two Protestant
gunmen yesterday night a n d
wounded two others in a blazing
gun battle in West Belfast.
The gunfight in the Shankill,
a stronghold of the Protestant,
paramilitary, climaxed three days
of rioting by Protestant mobs led
by marauding bands of cudgel-
wielding squads of the Ulster De-
fense Association. (UDA)
It came a few hours after the
extremist organization demanded

the withdrawal of the Parachute
Regiment's 1st Battalion, because
the crack unit was allegedly beat-
ing up Protestants.
UDA anger against the para-
troopers has been building up for
several weeks since Irish Repub-
lican Army guerrillas sneaked
deep into the Shankill last month
and blew up a bar, wounding 55
persons. The Protestants charge
the troops failed to protect them
from Roman Catholic IRA terror-
ists.

shoot-out
The army suggested in a state-
ment that the UDA lured soldiers
into an ambush, triggering the
sharp fight. There were no re-
ported injuries among the sold-
iers.
Rioting flared in the grimy,
working class tenement district at
dusk.
Troops reported masked bands
of the UDA moving in military-
type formations and armed with
clubs and shields. The area re-
mained tense from two previous
nights of rioting.
Two armored personnel carriers
were halted in Matchet Street by
a 40-man UDA squad. Youths
stoned the vehicles, which pulled
back. The paratroopers poured
out and dispersed the mob with
rubber bullets.

Harvey, however, told a very

According to the sheriff, some-
one spotted a man (Mason) hiding
in the grass near the road. He
said he went up to Mason, ques-

When asked why he was using
