(Studio) In North Ireland referendum, voters choose to remain part of UK rather than unite with Irish Republic.
REPORTER: John Chancellor

(Belfast, North Ireland) Results of voting not surprising as Protestant maj. voted in large numbers and Catholics largely boycotted elections. Question now is whether London and other English cities will get more bombings like those yesterday. Irish question still unresolved.
REPORTER: George Montgomery

(London, England) London still in shock over bombings. Many calls made to police about bombs being planted, but all false alarms. Police on guard for further violence. Question 10 suspects in yesterday's bombings. All suspects from North Ireland and connected with IRA.
REPORTER: Ray Scherer
