Chilling reminder from Loyalists

Statement from Sinn Fein Chairperson, Mitchel McLaughlin, describing the statement from the LVF as ``a chilling reminder'' of the real and immediate threat to all nationalists.

Mr McLaughlin said:

``Today's statement from the LVF is a chilling reminder of the real and immediate threat to the lives of all nationalists. It is also clear from the statement that the murde campaign against nationalists is designed to stop political change and to force nationalists to accept less than their democratic rights. Whether it is the LVF the UDA-UFF , the UVF or the Ulster Unionists Party trying to intimidate nationalists and hold back change, Sinn Fein will not be deflected from the important task of securing a democratic settlement to this conflict.''
