The BBC reports that
Sinn Fein has said its leader Gerry Adams has been told that an attack against him is “a strong possibility”.
Which can’t be comfortable for the Sinn Féin president, given the pressure he evidently feels himself to be under… But, unlike any ordinary citizen, this news was apparently conveyed not by the PSNI [pdf file], but by the Northern Ireland Security Minister Paul Goggins… Not that any of those latterly mentioned are going to discuss the security of individuals… Natch.
