    Background: The police in Northern Ireland have seized more weapons overnight (26-27/5) after stopping a car in the Falls Road area. Weapons including a Soviet made rocket grenade launcher were seized along with an already prime rocket. In the same vehicle police found automatic weapons and 100 armour piercing bullets. One man was arrested, and another man injured by gunfire after he tried to flee the stopped vehicle.

    More weapons were seized at the headquarters of the Ulster Defence Association, a paramilitary group. The weapons taken from the headquarters were crude but effective, including six homemade sten guns. Violence in Belfast continued overnight with a number of cars being set on fire.
