Leftist guerrillas disrupt Protestant office in Ulster

The Irish National Liberation Army, a Marxist splinter group of the Irish Republican Army, claimed responsibility for the explosion, as well as for two attacks Monday, in which a Protestant schoolmaster was shot and wounded and an attempt was made on the life of a Protestant candidate.
