Martin McGuinness: A hawk who made peace, says Carwyn Jones

Wales' first minister has paid tribute to Martin McGuinness, saying the Sinn Féin politician was "absolutely vital" in bringing peace to Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland's former deputy first minister has died aged 66 after suffering from a rare heart condition.

The former IRA leader turned peacemaker worked at the heart of the power-sharing government following the 1998 Good Friday Agreement.

Carwyn Jones said Mr McGuinness was one of the "hawks" who had brought peace.
