Video: Belfast City councillors condemn IRA paramilitary video tribute to Tony Catney


A fresh row broke out over paramilitary displays today after it emerged a masked terror squad fired a volley of shots over a make-shift shrine to dissident republican Tony Catney. The DUP called for a full police investigation after a video of the incident was posted online at the weekend, showing men in paramilitary uniforms firing shots as a tribute to the convicted killer who died recently. The film was reportedly made in Belfast on Tuesday and shows three men armed with AK47 rifles in front of a photograph of the ex-prisoner, a tricolour and a floral “IRA” tribute to mark his death. Events surrounding Catney's funeral on Wednesday have also provoked controversy with calls for an investigation into accompanying paramilitary-style displays. Credit: Belfast Telegraph
