7 charged with IRA membership in Northern Ireland

Posted:

 Seven Irishmen have been charged with membership in an Irish Republican Army faction after Northern Ireland police raided a suspected meeting of the outlawed Continuity IRA.

   A judge ordered all seven held without bail during their arraignment hearing at the courthouse in Newry, a predominantly Irish nationalist town near the province's border with the Republic of Ireland. Three live in the British north, and four in the independent south of Ireland. All were arrested at the same Newry house Nov. 10.

   Police say evidence against the men includes audio recordings of their private discussions produced covertly by the British spy agency MI5.

   Six of the men were charged with planning terrorist acts and conspiring to procure weapons. Five were charged with directing terrorism, a charge normally levied against suspected commanders.
