IRA emphasise "seriousness" in second statement…

THE IRA has released a second statement, which seems to be a reaction to the political response to its previous statement, when politicians and police played down the threat of potential violence. The IRA said: “The two governments are trying to play down the importance of our statement because they are making a mess of the peace process. Do not underestimate the seriousness of the situation.”
