The Irish Examiner reports that the “potential assassins” aligned with the Kinahan crime cartel were arrested en route to carrying out their hit during the Ireland-Belgium Euro 2016 game on Saturday.

Garda sources said that up to eight possible gun attacks have been thwarted in the Kinahan-Hutch feud.

The operation was led by the Garda Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau. The dramatic arrests of two men in separate cars, one carrying a loaded handgun, was conducted by the Emergency Response Unit shortly before 3pm in south-west Dublin.

“We suspect the two were on their way to shoot some unsuspecting guy,” said one garda source. “If they had gone into a pub with a loaded handgun, innocent people could have been caught up.

“This was a potential assassination and these are potential assassins. This is a very good capture and is the result of constant surveillance and good police work.”
