    A recent bombing and several hijackings in Londonderry, Northern Ireland's second-largest city, have raised fears of a new paramilitary threat.

    Police are looking at the suspected involvement of the dissident republican group, the New IRA, which wants to end the British control of the province.

    Brexit may destabilise things even more.
