The murders of the two young soldiers in Antrim and the Police Constable
After the first two murders, First Minster (DUP) and Deputy First Minister (Sinn Fein) stood together in front of cameras and together condemned the murderers of the two young soldiers. Peter Robinson and McGuinness spoke of their disgust at the murders and said that it was an attempt to kill the peace process. Though all parties involved in the peace process have assured all the people of Northern Ireland that the Peace Process will continue. The BBC interviewed both men separately as well and both maintained that there was no chance that Northern Ireland would go back to the bad old days.
Many people outside of Northern Ireland don't get that with all the horrible things this week, people have been truly scared that all these things will start again, that 'The Troubles' will start again and no-one wants that. The majority of Northern Ireland's citizens want peace for themselves, their children and their grandchildren. Peace for now and peace for the future.
