Attack on Mali military post kills 49 soldiers

  Attack on Mali military post kills 49 soldiers A "terrorist attack" on a military post in strife-torn northeastern Mali has left 49 soldiers dead, the army said Saturday, revising downward an earlier death toll. However several sources said the death toll had been underestimated. Mali's army has been struggling in the face of a jihadist revolt that has spread from the arid north to its centre, an ethnically mixed and volatile region.

The Irish Republican Army ( IRA ) is a name used by various paramilitary organisations in Ireland throughout the 20th and the 21st century.

McMenamin was fingerprinted by Randolph police and that’s when Immigration and Customs Enforcement became aware he was in Massachusetts. He now faces being deported back to Ireland.

“We arrested McMenamin and he is in ICE custody,” a law enforcement official said late Friday.

Randolph police said Saturday McMenamin was arrested Nov. 2. They declined further comment.

Efforts to reach McMenamin or a relative, both listed as possibly living in Holbrook, were unsuccessful. A Rhode Island man who once invited McMenamin — listed as an Irish Republican — to speak at an Irish heritage event in Pawtucket said the IRA never came up.

“He talked about growing up in Ireland and how hard it was as a kid,” said the man, who asked to remain anonymous. “That’s the last time I saw him. It was about three years ago and he was invited to speak to us.”

The Irish Republican Army ( IRA ) ( Irish : Óglaigh na hÉireann) was an Irish republican revolutionary paramilitary organisation. The ancestor of many groups also known as the Irish Republican Army , and distinguished from them as the Old IRA , it was descended from the Irish Volunteers

McMenamin and another man were arrested weeks after the 1993 bombing, according to multiple published reports. They were accused of launching the mortar attack against a police station in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, just minutes after the Irish Republican Army’s three-day Christmas cease-fire ended at midnight, United Press International reported at the time.

A spokesman for the Royal Ulster Constabulary said two people were injured by the blast, which damaged the police station in Fintona, a small town 40 miles west of Belfast, according to UPI.

The two innocent bystanders injured, a man and a woman in their 20s, “suffered shock and minor cuts,” the UPI said. They were passing by the unoccupied police station when the attack happened.

At the time, the IRA was fighting to end British rule in Northern Ireland. It was all part of “The Troubles” that gripped Northern Ireland for decades. A power-sharing agreement in 1998 ended the bloody civil war.

McMenamin was later paroled as part of a “compassionate release” initiated by England in 2009 as part of controversial discharge of the mastermind of the Pan Am Flight 103 “Lockerbie” bombing, according to published reports.

That bomber, Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, was sick and expected to live for only three more months. He died in 2012 having served eight years of a life sentence. The Pan Am bombing killed 270 people, most of them American.

It’s not clear how McMenamin, let go in that same release, made his way to Massachusetts. ICE officials in Boston would not comment on his case. He was picked up on “immigration violations,” a law enforcement official added.

The arrest comes as the New England ICE office is targeting illegal immigrant criminals, mostly wanted for avoiding deportation or already accused of drug trafficking.
