Court sees video of soldier murders

Chilling video footage played at the trial of two men for the murders of two soldiers, including one from London, have shown the moment the servicemen were gunned down by masked attackers.

Sappers Patrick Azimkar, 21, from London, and Mark Quinsey, 23, from Birmingham, were ambushed by the dissident republican Real IRA outside the Massereene Army barracks in Antrim, Northern Ireland, on March 7 2009.

High-profile republican Colin Duffy, 43, from Forest Glade in Lurgan, Co Armagh, and Brian Shivers, 46, from Sperrin Mews in Magherafelt, Co Londonderry, deny charges of murder and attempted murder.

Their trial opened at Antrim Crown Court and the packed room fell silent as CCTV images of the murders were played.

As Terence Mooney QC opened the Crown's case, he told how the habit of collecting pizzas at the gates of the base had left the troops vulnerable to attack.

He played the footage which showed five soldiers, wearing desert combat gear and only hours away from being deployed to Afghanistan, walk out of the base to meet pizza delivery cars. Two masked men then appeared, opening fire on the soldiers and the fast-food workers, before pausing to aim at what the prosecution said was wounded men who lay on the ground.

Mr Mooney later played an audio clip of a voice message said to have been accidentally left on a mobile phone found in a green Vauxhall car, believed to have been the getaway vehicle.

"The message is chilling and self-explanatory," he told the judge, Mr Justice Anthony Hart. The court then heard an audio clip of a male voice: "There were a few dead all right." A later excerpt added: "Have to say boys you were as cool as f***."

The troops from the 38 Engineer Regiment were about to begin a tour of duty in Afghanistan when they were gunned down in the attack by the Real IRA group, which opposes the Good Friday peace deal of 1998.

Shivers, who is on bail because he suffers from cystic fibrosis, wore jeans and a dark coat. Prison officers escorted Duffy into the court. He is being held on remand at Maghaberry prison in Co Antrim where he is involved in a so-called "no wash" protest.

Shivers has cystic fibrosis. Treatment for that must have come on a lot. I thought it usually killed you in your twenties. I hope the bastard dies painfully soon. I hope the other bastard is put away for life.

I wouldn't want to hang around a site where I was being stalked either.[/QUOTE

Blow job is a mong, he doesnt even know who the IRA are. This is the NI site where PIRA CIRA RIRA are hated because of what they are and what they do. Not the place for some brylcream nice boy ponce in reality.
Why did you not put a real uniform on when you joined.

I'm from Northern Ireland and every time you post, you embarrass me.
If you have nothing sensible to say, do us a favour and say nothing.
