U.S. military plane vandalized at Shannon airport
Irish protesters object to US military presence there
An aircraft used to transport US troops has been damaged in the latest security breach at Shannon airport in Ireland.
A hole was cut in a perimeter fence which allowed vandals access to the Omni Air International DC-10 airliner, where they severed its hydraulics pipe and spray painted the words 'US troops out.'

As the aircraft was a replacement plane it was not protected by Irish police or soldiers.
The latest attack comes eight years after a US Navy cargo jet was vandalized twice in a matter of days by Irish anti-war campaigners. At the time the incident forced the Government to provide a greater security presence at the airport.
