Police chiefs and organisers of the delayed funeral of a terrorist chief agreed a peace deal in Belfast which allowed the ceremony to go ahead yesterday, a day late. Police believe the INLA leader Gino Gallagher, 32, who was shot dead last Tuesday, was the victim of an internal feud.

The IRA was last night blamed for a rifle attack on the home of an off- duty Royal Ulster Constabulary reservist in which 57 shots were fired, although the RUC officially refused to comment on who was responsible for the attack near Moy, Co Tyrone. The officer and his wife escaped unhurt.
