    Background: Violence in Northern Ireland reached a new low today (Tuesday) when five men, two engineers from the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) and three local construction workers, were killed after their land rover ran over a mine. Almost at the same time Protestants attacked the funeral corteges for two Republicans killed by troops in gunfights on Friday night. These two incidents, coupled with the growing number of small children throwing missiles and even bombs at troops, has given the Northern Ireland fighting an ugly new look.
