2 men killed in separate Northern Ireland attacks

DUBLIN — Authorities blamed a resurgent Irish Republican Army faction Thursday for killing two men in separate gun attacks in Northern Ireland, the first such slayings in the British territory in nearly a year.

So-called ‘‘New IRA’’ militants claimed responsibility for killing Kevin Kearney, a 46-year-old Irish Catholic, on Tuesday in a Belfast park. Police found his body floating in a lake Wednesday and said he had been shot.
