    SYNOPSIS: A NEW BELFAST SOME OUTRAGE WRECKED A CLUB ONE OF NORTHERN IRELAND'S WORST CASUALTY TOLLS.

    THERE HAD BEEN FIFTY PEOPLE ON THE GROUND FLOOR AND TWO-HUNDRED UPSTAIRS, MANY OF THEM WOMEN, RESTING THEIR FEET AND HAVING TEA WITH THEIR CHILDREN AFTER AN AFTERNOON'S SHOPPING. WARNING OF THE SOME HADN'T REACHED THEM WHEN IT EXPLODED. FEW OF THOSE INSIDE -- OR IMMEDIATELY OUTSIDE -- ESCAPED INJURY. CASTLE LANE, A NARROW ONE-WAY STREET WAS STREWN WITH THOSE CAUGHT IN THE BLAST OR CUT DOWN BY FLYING GLASS. WITHIN MINUTES, IT WAS PACKED WITH AMBULANCES, FIRE ENGINES, FIREMEN, POLICEMEN, AND SOLDIERS AS THE RESCUE WORK BEGAN.

    MORE THAN A HUNDRED WERE INJURED, SOME OF THEM SERIOUSLY AND TWO PEOPLE WERE OFFICIALLY PRONOUNCED DEAD. IN THE CONFINED SPACE MEN FOUGHT TO CLEAR AWAY PARKED CARS AND ONLOOKERS AT THE DEAD AND INJURED WERE CARRIED AWAY TO THE AMBULANCES. THE MANY WHO WERE ONLY SHOCKED WERE TREATED IN THE WINDOWS OF SHOPS AND HELPED AWAY.
