Loyalists wage war on drug dealers thumbnail

LOYALIST paramilitaries have stepped from the shadows to declare war on the drug dealing gangs preying on young people in Antrim.
Sources close to the UDA have revealed that the clampdown has already begun in Parkhall.
After that, they say, project purge will move on to other estates.
A senior loyalist source said this week that paramilitary leaders have long been concerned about the ravages of drugs on the town's teens, but they were sparked into action after a young man recently took his own life.
