Real IRA threat to PSNI officers

The dissident republican group, the Real IRA, has threatened to kill more police officers and declared its opposition to the Queen's first visit to the Irish Republic next month.

A statement was read out by a masked man at a rally organised by the 32 County Sovereignty Movement in Londonderry on Monday.

It was organised to mark the anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising.

Around 200-300 people were in the crowd as the masked man read out the statement at the City Cemetery.

On the Queen's visit, he said: "The Queen of England is wanted for war crimes in Ireland and is not wanted on Irish soil."
