North Ireland's former deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness has died
Martin McGuinness, a former Irish Republican Army commander who was deputy first minister of Northern Ireland for a decade, has died aged 66 after a short illness, his party, Sinn Fein, announced on Tuesday.
"Throughout his life Martin showed great determination, dignity and humility, and it was no different during his short illness," Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams said in a statement.
"He was a passionate republican who worked tirelessly for peace and reconciliation and for the re-unification of his country. But above all he loved his family and the people of Derry and he was immensely proud of both."
