belfast - A Northern Ireland man was arrested Friday in connection with the murder of ten Protestant workers of a textile company. No one has ever been convicted for the killings, which according to police was the work of members of the IRA.
On January 5, 1976 armed men held at the village Kingsmill a van standing containing eleven Protestants. The only Catholics could get going in the van. When the Protestants were once outside they were riddled with bullets. One of them survived the attack. The IRA has always denied having been behind the attack.
The suspect is a 59 year old man from Newry. His fingerprint matches one that was found in the getaway car of the perpetrators.
