Commenting after being told by the PSNI that the dissident Republican group New IRA is planning a bomb attack on the car of a Sinn Féin member, the party’s deputy leader Michelle O Neill said:
“We have been told this planned attack could happen anywhere in the north.
This is literally a threat against thousands of Sinn Féin members and their families in the north.
…This latest threat shows once again that these groups are in conflict with their own community.
…Let me be very clear. Sinn Féin will not be deterred from pursuing our objective of a united Ireland.”
