Former senior Sinn Fein member Denis Donaldson has been found shot dead in the Republic of Ireland. Mr Donaldson was expelled from Sinn Fein after he admitted to being a British Spy. Mr Donaldson is believe to suffer a "traitors death" resulting in an execution style killing and one of his hand believe to be cut off.
Mr Donaldson was expelled from the party last December after admitting he was a paid British spy for 20 years.

The IRA issued a statement saying it had "no involvement whatsoever" in Mr Donaldson's death in County Donegal.

Irish prime minister Bertie Ahern described the death as a "brutal murder", while NI Secretary Peter Hain said it was "barbaric".

Tomorrow, both Irish and British Prime minsters will be introducing the blue print for Stormont (N.Ireland assembly) and to restart the peace process.

This death, is believed to been done to throw chaos to the process. Unionist are refusing to sit with republicans, claiming that Sinn Fein/IRA is behind this killing. Over the past few months, British, Irish and American politicans have been working hard to get the peace process started in N.Ireland. Even President Bush has been getting involved in the process, but this incident just adds to the deep suspicisions on republicans and their plan for democracy.

This is pretty terrible news. But I don't think that the irish want to go to war all over again, people want to get on with their lives. No one was benefiting from that disorder.
