‘Rocket attack’ plot against McGuinness (UTV)

Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness has said he has been made aware of a plot by dissident republicans to launch a rocket attack against him.
Mr McGuinness said the PSNI advised him that a group calling itself the ‘CIRA’ considered an attack against him using a rocket launcher.
On Monday night, the Sinn Féin MLA tweeted he takes threats seriously but would not be deflected in his work for peace.
In a statement he said: “I will not be silenced or deterred by this or any other threat from cowards masquerading as republicans.
“If those behind this threat think they are somehow advancing the cause of Irish reunification by contemplating or planning attacks against Irish republicans then they are clearly detached from reality.
“They need to catch themselves on, listen to the people of Ireland and abandon these futile actions.”
He added: “This will not stop me or anyone in Sinn Féin from our work in representing everyone in our society and continuing to pursue our political objectives.”
