  • Description

    On a day when another soldier was shot dead and a policeman wounded in Northern Ireland, the most ambitious attack was launched against an Army post in the Anderstown district of Belfast -- but on this occasion no-one was seriously hurt. Four gunmen drove past the post in a hijacked lorry, hurled a couple of gelignite bombs at it and peppered the post with over 50 rounds of ammunition. Several people living nearby were treated for shock and a baby was slightly cut by flying glass -- the gelignite blew out every window in the neighbourhood.
