Terror of farmer named as IRA killer

THE GUARDIAN reports on the terror of a Northern Irish farmer who was named in the House of Commons by Ian Paisley, leader of the Democratic Unionist Party, as the mastermind on IRA massacre.

Eugene Reavey, who makes his living from breeding French pedigree Limousin and Charolais cattle, was implicated in the Kingsmill massacre in 1976, when republican terrorists ambushed a minibus and shot dead 10 Protestant mill workers.

He fears his business will collapse because he no longer travels to work in Unionist areas. He also fears a loyalist revenge attack.
