Death threats: Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams

Security for Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams has been stepped up after a new death threat.

The PSNI says it has told Adams that the threat level against him is “very high.”

“We are taking these threats very seriously,” a Sinn Fein spokesman said.

“However, these death threats will not distract the party or the party president from carrying out their responsibilities and seeking to advance the peace process.”
