win Tuesday's Democratic Congressional primary in the

BELFAST, Northern Ireland
4P)--Militant Roman Catholics
launched yesterday a massive
anti - British protest punc-
tuated by bombings, gunfire,
hijackings and picket vigils
outside police and army posts.
The violence left a man dead
in Newry, where three guer-
rillas plant-d a bomb in a ser-
vice station. The victim, who
was believed to have been prim-
ing the charge when it detonat-
ed, was the 502nd fatality in
three years of Northern Ire-
land's bloodshed.
The British, however. cap-
tured Martin Meehan. a leader
of the militant Provisional wing
o- the Irish Republican Army,
(IRA) in a sweep into the Ar-

It was a major coup for the
British bcausv he was one of
the moAt wa',t-d aunmen in

display of anger at the first
anniversary of internment

talks on a political settlem-nt.
Whitelaw is still holding 283
men in the heavily guarded in-
ternment camp at Long Kesh
outside Belfast.
Meanwhile, soldiers e's.where
in Belfast said they shot two
guerrilla gunmen. The army
claimed that at least one, who
was dragged away by comrades,
was killed. Three soldiers wore
slightly injured.
The carefully orchestrated
protest began at precisely 4

a year ago barreled into IRA
strongholds and lifted suspect-
