Real IRA threatens more 'executions' of police

The Real IRA warned yesterday that it planned to kill more police in Northern Ireland and disrupt the Queen's historic visit to Ireland. At a rally in Londonderry to mark the anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising against British rule, a masked member of the dissident republican group told supporters that police would be considered "as liable for execution as anyone, regardless of their religion, cultural background or motivation". In a statement, the group also branded the Queen a war criminal ahead of her first visit to the Republic from 17 to 20 May.

Joan Smith: Murder is always wrong, and has nothing to do with faith

When Roshonara Choudhry was jailed for life at the Old Bailey last week, she was said to be the first person to have attempted an al-Qa'ida-inspired assassination of a public figure in this country. Her target, the Labour MP Stephen Timms, survived being stabbed twice in the stomach by the student, but an Islamist website urged other British Muslims to murder politicians who supported the Iraq war. The US-run site, since taken down, published a list of targets, expressed the hope that Choudhry's crime would "inspire Muslims to raise the knife of jihad", and suggested that MPs be tracked down at their advice surgeries, offering a link to a supermarket website where knives can be bought.
