IRA Statement 

"The leadership of Oglaigh na hEireann has formally ordered an end to the armed campaign."

Some early analysis of the statement, via Slugger O'Toole.

Update (7/18 12:57PM)
: Now, it's the Loyalist's turn to give up their weapons.
But they were puzzled and frustrated by the decision to get rid of all the guns when loyalists remain fully armed.
Widower Jimmy McAley, 50, urged republicans to store their huge arsenal rather than destroy them.

"Give all the weapons up and the swines on the other side will come in and wipe us out like they did in `69," (which gave birth to the Provisional IRA) he claimed.

Mr McAley, admitted the conflict had left him a bitter and committed republican.
