Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams has said he has been warned about another death threat.
He tweeted that officers from the PSNI told him about the threat, which relates to him and other members of the Sinn Féin leadership.
He said the threat was made by someone claiming to speak for the loyalist paramilitary group the UFF.

The PSNI said they did not discuss the security of any individual, but that if they believe someone may need to review their security, they inform them immediately, and would never ignore information that could put a person at risk.
In May, he was told there was a “credible” threat against his life after his release from police custody where he had been questioned about the murder of Belfast mother Jean McConville in 1972 and other alleged links to the IRA.
He blamed opponents of the peace process for the threat which was passed to members of his family while he was detained at Antrim police station for four days.
Earlier this week, Mr Adams, 65, was forced to apologise for using offensive language to describe some unionists during a public meeting in the North.
He used the term “bastards” while answering a question at a gathering in Co Fermanagh but insisted it was aimed at bigots.
