article imageThe Real IRA threatens Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness

By Julian Worker     Apr 12, 2009 in Politics
After their recent attack on a British Army post in Northern Ireland, the Real IRA has threatened to kill Martin McGuinness. The group has warned catholics to leave the Police Service of Northern Ireland. London has also been told to expect more attacks.
On March 7th, 2009, members of the Real IRA murdered two British Sappers outside the Massereene barracks in Armagh, Northern Ireland. They were the first troops to die in Northern Ireland since the IRA ceasefire in 1997.
On the 93rd anniversary of the Easter uprising, the dissident group has issued a statement in the Irish newspaper the Sunday Tribune. They have threatened the life of Sinn Fein's Martin McGuinness denouncing him as a traitor for holding the position of Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland. After the March 7th attacks, Mr McGuinness had branded the Real IRA as traitors to the people of Northern Ireland.
The statement also said that London would again become a target. Not only will landmarks such as the previously attacked MI6 HQ on the South Bank and the BBC Television Centre again come under threat, but certain high profile targets will be earmarked for intended assassination.
The Real IRA also indicated that young catholics who join the Police Service of Northern Ireland will be killed if they refuse to leave the force.
