Policeman shot dead in northern Ireland

BELFAST (Reuters) - A policeman was shot dead in Northern Ireland late on Monday, a senior politician said, just hours after Prime Minister Gordon Brown said the shooting of two British soldiers would not derail the peace process.

“We are tonight staring into the abyss and I would appeal to people to pull back,” said Dolores Kelly, a member of Northern Ireland’s policing board, and a member of the nationalist SDLP party.

“I certainly would want to offer my sympathies and condolences to the family of the officer who has been murdered tonight and to the wider police family,” Kelly said.
