APTOPIX Northern Ireland Killings
Police Forensic officers examine the scene close to the spot were a man was shot dead, in Londonderry, Northern Ireland, Thursday, Oct. 10, 2013. Authorities blamed a resurgent Irish Republican Army faction Thursday for killing two men in separate gun attacks in Northern Ireland, the first such slayings in the British territory in nearly a year. So-called "New IRA" militants claimed responsibility for killing Kevin Kearney, a 46-year-old Irish Catholic man, on Tuesday in a Belfast park. Police found his body floating in a lake in the park Wednesday and said he had been shot. A second man was fatally shot in his apartment Thursday in the center of Londonderry, Northern Ireland's second-largest city. IRA extremists again were suspected. (AP Photo/Peter Morrison)
