|Ireland||CATHOLIC BISHOPS CALL FOR UNITY AGAINST INTIMIDATION|
The Catholic Bishops have called on all Northern Ireland politicians to unite in try to end the intimidation of Catholic families.
The Bishop of Down and Connor, Dr Patrick Walsh, said that the Bishops were reflecting a similar plea by the Presbyterian Church, the largest Protestant group in Northern Ireland.
Meanwhile, the Chief Constable of Northern Ireland's police force has warned that "evil and malevolent people" are seeking to exploit the dispute over a controversial Loyalist parade to undermine the prospects of a political agreement in Northern Ireland.
Sir Ronnie Flanagan said the murder of a Protestant woman in a Loyalist bomb attack on her home at Portadown at the weekend was intended to heighten tensions in the run-up to the Drumcree parade on 4 July.
