Stormont has been evacuated after convicted loyalist killer Michael Stone attempted to enter the building during a debate, throwing in what witnesses have described as being a live device. While trying to enter the building Stone was heard shouting "no surrender". After gaining entry to Stormont he was grabbled to the floor by security staff and arrested shortly after. Stone is known for his sickening acts, which include opening fire at an IRA funeral that resulted in the death of three people.
Stone was arrested after walking into the Parliament Buildings with a bag which he left on the floor.

Police said the building was evacuated following reports of a device.

The meeting was being held to hear if the DUP and Sinn Fein would indicate their candidates for the first and deputy first minister jobs.

During the debate, Sinn Fein said Martin McGuinness was its choice for deputy first minister.

Breaking news so not much infomation available at the moment. It seems that today was the 'make or break' meeting to pave the way for elections in March, 2007. After this security breach it seems the date will now have to be put forward.

By the sounds of it there were a few devices inside the rucksack that he threw into Stormont. Bomb disposal dealt with them.

The army has defused around half a dozen improvised bombs at Stormont after a notorious loyalist murderer stormed a meeting of Northern Ireland's politicians.

The Northern Ireland chief constable Sir Hugh Orde said: "Their potential for death, destruction and injury is being assessed."

"They are fairly amateurish in design - that does not make them any less dangerous."

Stormont was evacuated as Michael Stone, a former Ulster Freedom Fighter prisoner, burst into the building.

The Rev Ian Paisley and Gerry Adams were among those ushered away.

Stone is an infamous killer, who once opened fire on mourners at an IRA funeral, killing three people.

This waste of a skin is one of many who should have been kept locked up instead of being freed as part of the Good Friday Agreement. 684 years he got back then and was released as a good will gesture. Hopefully they'll get the message this time and let him rot!

So let me get this right..

Northern Ireland was discussing in their parliment a bill to restore power sharing with Ireland? And this idiot stormed in because he has a problem with the IRA.. so he was going to blow up Nothern Irelands parliment because he did not want them doing business with Ireland?
