Gang Killings in Ireland Covered Up by Belfast Police

After over three years of research, Police Ombundsman Nuala O'Loan released a report on Monday accusing Belfast police of covering up at least 10 gang killings between 1993 and 2000. Belfast police were paid off in tip-offs in exchange to keep quiet about the murders. The police involved, however, are unlikely to be criminally charged, because they covered their tracks very well.

The coverage of this event was very similar between the St Paul Pioneer Press and the Star Tribune, the only difference being the order of information released in the articles.

The only great challenge in reporting this story is obtaining information from an international source.
