Online threats to McGuinness probe

The PSNI are investigating online threats made against Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness.

It is believed the threats were made by a former member of the Ulster Defence Regiment.

A Sinn Féin spokesperson said: “These posts are a matter of concern especially if it is proven that this is a former member of the British crown forces. Given the gravity of the threat those senior unionist politicians who follow this account should assist in identifying whoever is behind it.”
