UDA to support devolution

The UDA has revealed that it will support the devolved government if it is reinstated next month, it was today reported.

The organisation's inner circle met with other leading loyalists during a meeting in Londonderry yesterday evening for the launch of a document entitled 'Learning from others in conflict.'

The document contained a promise that the UDA will no longer use arms to pursue its aims and also recognised how the Catholic community had suffered greatly as a result of their actions throughout the years.
