Nazis target loyalist estates
An extreme right-wing British nationalist party calling for the introduction of a shoot-to-kill policy in the north have been condemned for carrying out a leaflet drop in Derry.
Local loyalist leaders said such views were not welcome in loyalist estates.
The Ulster branch of the British People's Party (BPP), a pro-white power group who claim to "represent the interests of the ultra Nationalists of Great Britain", distributed hundreds of leaflets in loyalist areas of Derry's Waterside on Saturday.
In a statement on their website, on which Hitler's birthday was yesterday openly celebrated, the BPP state the leaflet drop comes as part of a campaign "against the late upsurge in dissident republican activity in Northern Ireland".

The statement reads: "The activists posted leaflets through the doors of houses on Bond Street, Clooney Estate and Lincoln Court, stating "Bring back the 'shoot-to-kill policy' for suspected IRA terrorists!"
The party claim to have been met with "a very positive response from the locals who seemed disconcerted by the lack of action taken against the late attacks perpetrated by the Real-IRA."
"The Ulster BPP is confident that more positive comments are yet to come, and that there will be some new recruits in the Londonderry area," the statement concludes.
