Two police officers were critically wounded when a time bomb blew up their guard station at a roadblock in Portadowu, 30 miles southwest of Belfast. Authorities blamed the attack on the outlawed Irish Republican Army (IRA), the predominantly Roman Catholic movement that seeks to end British rule in Northern Ireland and unite the North with the Irish republic. The IRA's Provisional wing warned Sunday it will launch a new terror campaign against the Protestant-dominated police force, the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) unless its ''torture centre" at Cast-lereagh barracks in east Belfast is closed. The IRA said the RUC no longer was covered by the Provisionals' 7Vs-month ceasefire. It alleged police brutality against suspects at the Castlereagh base, a heavily fortified building long used as an interrogation centre by the police.
