The UVF after the LVF

The Independent Monitoring Commission has concluded that the Ulster Volunteer Force is trying to wipe out the rival Loyalist Volunteer Force.

In a report published today, the Independent Monitoring Commission said the recent feud between the two groups was the worst violence it had been asked to investigate since its establishment a year-and-a-half ago.

It said the Progressive Unionist Party had lost control over the UVF, which had decided that the time was now right to "finish off" the LVF.

The IMC said the UVF was responsible for four murders carried in July and August as part of the feud, as well as some 38 others attacks.

The LVF was blamed for 11 attacks.

I am in favour of the LVF being wiped out - but not in this fashion. This loyalist violence must end before more people die needlessly.
