Blair: IRA campaign of violence over

The Irish Republican Army’s (IRA) violent campaign in Northern Ireland is over, British Prime Minister Tony Blair said on Wednesday, following a report into paramilitary activity that raised hopes of reviving self-rule. Northern Ireland’s ceasefire watchdog, the Independent Monitoring Commission, said in the report that it believed the IRA was no longer engaged in terrorism.
