Sectarian Violence in N. Ireland (again???)

I hope this is just an episode, even if it's so horrible...

I am translatin from an Italian article found on

A 15-year-old catholic boy died in a hospital of Ballymena, N. Ireland, after he was hit with baseball bats by a group of protestant boys. 4 men and one boy were taken to the police station for interviews.

The boy was named Michael McIlvben. He went out on Saturday to buy a pizza and he was stopped in a street of Ballymena, county Antrim, and beaten with an indescribable violence.

He was able to reach home, but then his condition got worse and he was taken to the hospital, where he died.

Terry Devlin, the executive officer that will make the enquiry about this case, said it was a "murder with sectarian origins"

"It's disguting" -- said the British Minister for Northern Ireland, Peter Hain "and it takes Northern Ireland back to its worst and darkest day".

I think it seems hopeless to think that it will ever end there, I hate to say that
