CIRA issues chilling threat to Dublin drug dealers

The Continuity IRA has reportedly issued a chilling threat warning drug dealers and other "anti-social elements" to leave the country within 24 hours.

Reports this morning said the organisation had issued the warning to a newspaper last night using a recognised code word.

The Dublin brigade of the dissident republican group reportedly said any drug dealers who had been previously warned had 24 hours to leave the country or face the consequences.

This morning's reports said the caller had indicated that there would be no more "hoaxes or warnings".
