Catholic murdered by UFF

The outlawed Ulster Freedom Fighters last night claimed responsibility for the murder of a Catholic man who was shot dead as he sat in a van on the outskirts of north Belfast.

They claimed Robert Shaw, 56, who was recovering from heart surgery, had been an election worker for Sinn Fein, the IRA's political wing, but the party said that was not true and branded the killing a 'sectarian murder'.
