McGuinness says dissidents have little or no support

Sinn Fein's Martin McGuinness has told a commemoration in Derry that dissident republicans have little or no support in the community.

The Deputy First Minister said such groups had come to a fork in the road and must pursue a peaceful future.

He also appealed to young republicans to get into politics rather than paramilitarism.

Mr McGuinness was speaking in the wake of the murder of 22-year-old Emmett Sheils in the Creggan area last week.

He was shot dead after apparently intervening in a planned attack by a group of masked gunmen.
