Pensioners targeted by Stoneyford files

Sinn Féin Councillor Paul Butler has described the latest development in the Stoneyford Orange Hall files saga as a ``most sinister development''. He was speaking following revelations that some people named on the loyalist death list are pensioners with ``no political connections whatsoever''. NIO security minister Adam Ingram has so far refused to meet with Sinn Féin to discuss the issue, said Butler.

Meanwhile, a young couple in West Belfast say they are ``living in fear'' after learning that their address was among the documents found in Stoneyford. The couple moved into their Springfield Park house less than a year ago. Another name was attached to the address. There were no descriptions or further details such as car registrations. ``I think they could just come out and plant something or shoot us because they don't know who they are looking for,'' said one of the worried residents.
