Sinn Fein faces growing pressure over second IRA rape allegation

There is growing pressure on Sinn Fein over claims that republicans covered up allegations of sex abuse.

A second alleged victim has waived his anonymity to claim that he was raped by a member of the IRA. He says senior republicans offered to kill his alleged abuser but instead exiled him to England.

Chris Buckler reports.

BBC Spotlight will be broadcast BBC One Northern Ireland at 22:45 GMT on Tuesday 10 March.
