Omagh Civil Case Defendant Jailed as Real IRA Member

A Dublin court Monday sentenced a man being sued by relatives of those killed in the 1998 Omagh bombing to eight years in prison for being a member of dissident republican guerrilla group the Real IRA.

Campbell, a senior figure in the group responsible for killing 29 people in a car-bomb attack in the Northern Irish market town of Omagh nearly six years ago, has already been in jail since mid-2001 for Real IRA membership, but the conviction was quashed on appeal earlier this year.
