ARMED SECURITY guards employed to protect the military base in Northern Ireland where two soldiers were shot dead did not open fire on the terrorists, even when they stood over the injured men and fired further shots.

Two soldiers and two deliverymen were also injured in the attack, for which the dissident republican group the Real IRA claimed responsibility.

The Army and police confirmed that no shots were fired in retaliation. The Real IRA described the Domino’s Pizza deliverymen as “collaborators of British rule in Ireland”.

Army sources said that it was the first time that the Northern Ireland Security Guard Service (NISGS) had had to deal with a direct attack on a base. The service took over responsibility for security of barracks from soldiers more than 10 years ago.

The sources said the soldiers from 38 Engineer Regiment were not carrying weapons when they left Massereene Barracks in Co Antrim to take delivery of pizzas, but that the NISGS were routinely armed.
