Report: IRA Assassins Plotting Terrorist Attack on G8 Summit in Northern Ireland

This whole world is descending into chaos.

This is like a headline from the 1970s.

At Sun UK, "IRA G8 bomb plot fear as world leaders gather for summit in Northern Ireland":

IRA Bomb
A rebel group, calling itself the New IRA, knows a bomb spectacular would hijack global headlines.

PM David Cameron, US President Barack Obama and Russia’s Vladimir Putin will be among those meeting in Enniskillen in June.

A Whitehall source said: “We can’t rule out some cowardly attack.”

The renegade terror group plotting to wreck the summit has 700 members, security chiefs warn.

Five militant groups opposed to the Northern Ireland peace process have joined forces to form the New IRA.

The summit, at the five-star loch-side Lough Erne hotel in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, will also be attended by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande, Canadian PM Stephen Harper, Japanese PM Shinzo Abe and Italian PM Mario Monti, if he is re-elected next month.

A senior Whitehall source said: “We are very confident that the G8 venue is completely secure.

“But we can’t rule out the possibility of some kind of cowardly attack in another part of the Province.”
It's like a Robert Ludlum novel, or something. A throwback, in any case.
