I won't be deterred by rocket attack threat – McGuinness
Sinn Féin MLA Martin McGuinness has said he will not be deterred from serving all the people of this community after being made aware of a plot to launch a rocket attack against him.
Mr McGuinness said;
"I have been made aware the PSNI has discovered a plan to launch a rocket attack against me.
"The PSNI has said that a group calling itself ‘CIRA’ considered an attack against me using a rocket launcher.
"I will not be silenced or deterred. These people are only interested in plunging us back into the past.
"If those behind this threat think they have ability to destroy the peace agreements which have been endorsed by the overwhelming majority of the people of Ireland then they are clearly detached from reality.
"They need to wise up, listen to the people of Ireland and abandon these futile actions.
"This threat 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."
