British spy devices found

A huge quantity of British army surveillance equipment was discovered by a farmer on Monday 8 June on his farmland near Crossmaglen.

Cameras, microphones, infra red sensors, satellite receivers and a large power pack was discovered in the Cornonagh area. Among the equipment was a sophisticated camera camouflaged in moss and grass. It appeared to be pointing in the direction of houses and a road junction.

The British Army saturated the same area a number of weeks ago after alleging a shot had been fired. It is now obvious that this was a ploy to allow the installation of surveillance equipment.

Conor Murphy, Sinn Fein Assembly candidate for the area, said, ''this is a further indication of the attitude of the British army and securocrats to the peace process.''
