    Background: One of Northern Ireland's biggest police hunts began in Belfast today (Thursday) for the killers of three young British soldiers. The three were gunned down in a lonely country lane on the city outskirts the previous night.

    BBC cameraman found the scene of the shooting still heavily cordoned off this morning, while detectives carried out a search of the area.

    In the afternoon, focus shifted to a new potential source of trouble --- the funeral of a known member of the banned Irish Republican Army, Charles Hughes, who was killed in a gun battle on Monday night. Men of the Paratroop Regiment enforced strict security precautions, and the funeral passed off quietly.
