Fr Michael Canny offers to meet Real IRA members

A Londonderry priest has offered to meet members of the Real IRA, after the dissident group threatened to kill more police officers.

The threat was made in a statement by a masked man at a 32 County Sovereignty Movement rally in the city on Monday.

Fr Michael Canny said that despite his offer to talk he believed dissidents were interested only in pursuing their goals through violence.

Mark Simpson reports.
