Above all Catholics live there, who simply call their city Derry

Nobody got hurt. A warning was received 15 minutes before the explosion and the police began to evacuate the surrounding buildings. Hamilton reported that, among other things, hundreds of hotel guests and a great many children of a youth club had to be brought to safety. The car in which the bomb was placed was believed to have been stolen nearby shortly beforehand.

The police had already started cordoning off the area

According to a statement from the police, the officers had received a warning before the explosion on Saturday evening that a bomb had been placed in front of the courthouse on Bishop Street. The vehicle was believed to have been stolen in the vicinity shortly beforehand, the message said. According to media reports, the police had just started cordoning off the area when the explosion broke out. Fortunately, no one was killed or injured. Police posted a photo on Twitter of the Bishop Street crime scene showing a large fire. Later pictures show the burned out car.

There are always arguments

Even 20 years after the Good Friday Agreement, which ended the bloody conflict in Northern Ireland, clashes over the future of the region continue. Catholic nationalists who want to unite with Ireland are opposed to Protestant unionists who want to remain part of Great Britain. The Irish Republican Army (IRA) fought violently against pro-British Protestants in the Northern Ireland conflict.

The British Minister for Northern Ireland, Karen Bradley, interpreted the attack as an attempt to “bring progress in Northern Ireland to a standstill” after a 20-year peace process. The chairman of the Nordic Unionists, Arlene Foster, spoke of a “senseless act of terror”.

Vice-Commissioner of Police Hamilton described the alleged perpetrators: “Like most republican dissident groups in Northern Ireland, the New IRA is small, largely unrepresentative and designed to get people back where they don’t want to be.”

The 85,000-inhabitant city of Londonderry is located in the northwest of the province on the border with the Republic of Ireland. Irish Republicans who do not recognize the British government of Northern Ireland call the city Derry.

Boris Johnson is set to become the next UK Prime Minister next week. He is tough on Brexit and demands concessions from the EU, but his demands seem impossible.

“Don’t waste this time”. With these words, EU Council President Donald Tusk warned the British when Brexit was postponed for the second time in April. In the new deadline of October 31, the British Parliament should find a majority for the Brexit agreement – this is how the European Union imagined it. But in the three months since then, the British have not come a step further.

In a few days, Prime Minister Theresa May, who negotiated the Brexit treaty and failed three times in the lower house, is leaving. For them, the Brexit hardliner Boris Johnson is likely to come, who is well ahead of the second successor candidate Jeremy Hunt in polls in the party decision. Johnson makes full-bodied promises for changes to the agreement – which the EU categorically excludes. A Brexit without a contract on October 31st, with devastating consequences for the economy, is therefore increasingly likely. Johnson and Hunt also want to accept that.

What are the candidates asking from Brussels?

The two identified the so-called backstop as the main problem with the Brexit deal. This is a guarantee clause that is intended to prevent border controls from having to be reintroduced between the British Northern Ireland and the EU member Ireland. Because that could rekindle the old conflict between Catholic supporters of unification in Ireland and Protestant loyalists.community service essay format

The backstop stipulates that Great Britain remains part of a customs union with the EU until the problem is otherwise resolved. In addition, some of the rules of the European internal market are to apply to Northern Ireland.

The clause is an “instrument of incarceration” for Great Britain in the customs union and internal market, Johnson rumbled in a radio duel earlier this week. He calls for the backstop to be removed and for the Irish border issue to be resolved in a future free trade agreement with the EU only after the country has left. “The backstop is dead,” assured Hunt.

What is the European Union saying?

The EU is stiffening on the opposite position. “The exit agreement is alive,” says German Minister of State Michael Roth. And the EU Commission always repeats the mantra: There will be no renegotiations.

One has vague hope in Brussels that the British candidates will only be foaming up in the election campaign. “That has developed into a political smear theater,” says the Green MEP Terry Reintke, for example. “There is a lot of bluffing.”

The rhetoric is getting tougher in Brussels too. We are talking about a “fantasy world” of the candidates. “In the real world (the candidates’ ideas) mean a no-deal with devastating consequences,” says an EU diplomat. “If Britain wants this, it will get it. If not, it has to face reality and act accordingly.”

What’s next?

The candidate who prevails will be tasked with forming a government by Queen Elizabeth II on Wednesday. Most likely Johnson will. He takes over a government that has only a wafer-thin majority in parliament with just three votes.

A vote on Thursday showed how great the distrust of Johnson is. The MPs voted surprisingly clear in favor of an amendment that would make it very difficult for Johnson to temporarily shut down parliament for a no-deal solution.

Does Johnson have a plan?

The former London mayor and ex-foreign minister is probably counting on the EU to give in when it becomes clear how serious he is about a no deal. Especially the EU member Ireland, which would have to take care of the border controls with the British Northern Ireland, will give way, hope the Johnson supporters.

So far there is nothing to suggest. The EU insists that at best the Political Declaration on the future relationship between the two sides is still up for debate. Johnson is expected to tour European capitals in the summer to carve out the EU’s previously rock-solid front. Next to the Irish capital, Berlin and Paris are high on the list.

Will Parliament in London prevent a no-deal?

Parliament’s options are limited. The summer break begins just one day after Johnson took office. The showdown shouldn’t come until September or even October. The MPs would have to seize control of the parliamentary calendar and force the government by law to postpone the exit from the EU.

If that doesn’t succeed, the only thing left for the pro-European rebels in the Tory faction to do is overthrow their own government. But it is unclear who would actually be ready to take this extraordinary step. The inhibition threshold is high.

Will there be a new election in Great Britain soon?

In view of the messy situation in parliament, an early election is now considered likely. The question is whether it will take place before or after leaving the EU. There have already been signals from parts of the EU that the Brexit date on October 31 could be postponed again for an election.

“I am ready to postpone the exit date again if more time is needed for a good reason,” says future EU Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen. The prospect is not tempting to have to begin as a crisis manager of tensions on the Irish island, truck jams on the English Channel and production losses in the industry when she takes office on November 1st.

 However, Johnson has ruled out a postponement of the Brexit date. Like his rival Hunt, he does not want an election before leaving, for fear of losing votes to Nigel Farage’s Brexit party. On the other hand, Johnson could hardly pull off the no-deal he threatened without a clear majority in parliament. Only a new electoral mandate could secure such a drastic step.

Londonderry (AP) – After a car bomb exploded in the Northern Irish city of Londonderry, five men were arrested who are said to belong to the militant group New IRA.

Four men between the ages of 20 and 42 were arrested on Sunday. On Monday, the police reported the arrest of a 50-year-old. Various groups are up to mischief in British Northern Ireland.

According to mediator Michael Doherty, Britain’s planned exit from the EU can fuel such incidents. Above all, it is feared that the introduction of border controls between the EU member Republic of Ireland and the British Northern Ireland will restart the spiral of violence in the ex-civil war region.

“Brexit will undoubtedly be seen as an excuse for Republicans to force the British state off the Irish island,” Doherty told the German press agency. For decades he has mediated in conflicts between Protestants and Catholics. He is also in contact with paramilitaries in Londonderry and has already received awards for his work.

The explosive device detonated in the city center on Saturday evening in front of a court. Nobody got hurt. A warning was received just 15 minutes before the explosion. The police then began to evacuate the surrounding buildings. Video recordings showed how dangerous the situation was: A few minutes before the attack, a group of people passed the vehicle.

Deputy Police Commissioner Mark Hamilton reported that hundreds of hotel guests and a great many children of a youth club had to be brought to safety. The vehicle in which the bomb was placed had been stolen shortly before by a pizza supplier. On Monday, the robbery of two cars by armed, masked men put the police on twice again on alert.

The 85,000-inhabitant city of Londonderry is located in the north-west of the province on the border with the Republic of Ireland. Above all Catholics live there, who simply call their city Derry.

The British Minister for Northern Ireland, Karen Bradley, interpreted the attack as an attempt to “bring progress in Northern Ireland to a standstill” after a 20-year peace process. The leader of the Northern Irish unionist party DUP, Arlene Foster, spoke of a “senseless act of terror”.

Even 20 years after the Good Friday Agreement, which ended the bloody conflict in Northern Ireland, disputes over the future of the region continue. In the civil war, Catholic nationalists who wanted to unite with Ireland faced Protestant unionists who wanted to remain part of Great Britain. The Irish Republican Army (IRA) fought against pro-British Protestant groups, the police and the British military in the Northern Ireland conflict. Even today there is isolated violence.

Hamilton described the alleged perpetrators as follows: “Like most Republican dissident groups in Northern Ireland, the New IRA is small, largely unrepresentative, and designed to get people back where they don’t want to be.”

About 3,700 people were killed, nearly 50,000 injured and 500,000 are considered mentally traumatized during the Northern Ireland conflict.

London (dpa) – The British Man Booker Literature Prize this year goes to the Northern Irish author Anna Burns. The 56-year-old received an award for her novel “Milkman” in London on Tuesday evening. The book is about an 18-year-old girl in Northern Ireland during the Civil War and her experiences with sexual assault, sectarian conflict and social pressures.

Burns pronounced the voice of the “funny, resilient, astute, open” first-person narrator and implemented it convincingly, the jury explained. The author was surprised at the award. In a short speech she thanked her agent, publishers and friends. “Oh my god, I better stop,” she said before storming breathlessly off the stage.

What is unusual about Burns’ book is that none of the characters have a name. The protagonist is only presented as a “middle sister”. She is harassed and forced into a relationship by an elderly married man fighting in a paramilitary unit. The “milkman”, as the man is called, exploits the structures of violent conflict to impose his will on the young woman.
