The controversy over claims that Britain allowed two IRA informers to organise ‘human bomb’ attacks intensified this weekend.
A human rights watchdog has handed a report to the Police Service of Northern Ireland, which concludes that two British agents were central to the bombings of three army border installations in 1990.

The ‘human bomb’ tactic involved forcing civilians to drive vehicles laden with explosives into army checkpoints and included deadly sorties near Newry and Coshquin outside Derry. Six British soldiers and a civilian worker at an army base died in the simultaneous blasts on either side of Northern Ireland.
British Irish Rights Watch said: ‘This month BIRW sent a confidential report to the Historical Enquiries Team on the three incidents that occurred on 24th October 1990… at least two security force agents were involved in these bombings, and allegations have been made that the “human bomb” strategy was the brainchild of British intelligence.
