Paint bombs were thrown at Martin McGuinness's home last night

“The people behind these attacks have nothing to offer the community.”

NORTHERN IRELAND DEPUTY first minister Martin McGuinness has condemned a paint bomb attack on his home in Derry last night.

He accused the attackers of having “nothing to offer the community and they are intent on dragging society back to the past”.

In a statement, McGuinness said: “Neither I or the people I represent will allow them to do that.”

The Sinn Féin MLA noted that the incident follows an arson attack on the car of a Sinn Féin member in Derry last week.

Some election billboards and posters were also previously targeted.

Other members of his family, including grandchildren, were in the house at the time of the paint bomb attack.
