A sudden outbreak of attacks and threats…

Just checking Newshound this afternoon, and what’s most striking is the number of attacks and/or threats against Sinn Fein offices, senior party personnel and a prominent journalist. Indeed the LVF has issued a threat against two journalists at the Sunday World. The LVF killed one of its journalists, Martin O’Hagan six years ago.
