    Background: LONDON, COUNTY TYRONE, DUBLIN

    Britain's Northern Ireland Secretary, James Prior, has admitted full responsibility for mistakes made in the attempt to arrest Noraid publicity director, Martin Galvin. Prior said the ban on Galvin entering the UK and the attempt to arrest him - during which one man died and twenty others were injured in plastic bullet attacks by police - could have been a mistake. He said it could harm political relations in the region. In Dublin, a group of Sinn Fein supporters staged a peaceful three hour sit-in in the offices of the British Airways in protest over the death. Noraid, a US support group for the Irish Nationalists, called the police action a savage and unprovoked attack. Noraid delegates also tool part in a demonstration in Dublin outside the British Embassy. In Northern Ireland, County Tyrone, the funeral service for an RUC police sergeant, Malcolm White, was held. He died in an IRA (IRISH REPUBLICAN ARMY) attack. Colleagues from his police station acted as pallbearers.
