  • Description

    In Belfast, Northern Ireland hundreds of men from the militant Protestant Ulster Defence Association (UDA) staged a show of force on Wednesday(28 June) during a funeral procession for one of their murdered volunteers.

    The UDA mon marched through the city centre without the face masks that have characterised their previous military style parades.

    Later in the day, UDA leaders said they would put up new street barricades throughout Northern Ireland later this weekend. Some, they claimed, would be permanent.

    The UDA made the announcement after emerging from a meeting with Britain's Minister for Northern Ireland, Mr William Whitelaw.

    They said most of the barricades would come down but others would remain as long as Catholics were allowed to keep their barricaded "no-go" areas in the city of Londonderry.

    The developments came on the second day of ceasefire called by the Provisional wing of the outlawed Irish Republican Army.

    Coverage of the UDA funeral march was filmed by the British Broadcasting Corporation. Reporter Michael Sullivan's commentary is tran???bed below. An alternative commentary prepared by Visnews appears overlo???
