Soldiers killed in Northern Ireland terror attack

Per Irish Times, two British soldiers have been killed after a gun attack at their barracks in Northern Ireland. BBC Northern Ireland reports the attack is likely an attempt by dissident republicans to wreck the province's peace process. It's been 12 years since the last British soldier was killed in a terror attack in Northern Ireland.
