Dissident republicans are inept but dangerous, Northern Ireland's chief constable has said.
Security is being stepped up across Northern Ireland after the police issued a warning of an "increased terrorist threat".
Detectives said the public are likely to notice increased activity, including vehicle checkpoints
Now the police believe that the dissidents may be planning a series of firebomb attacks on commercial premises.
This would be at a time when the power-sharing administration is gearing up to hold an international investment conference in Belfast in May
The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) has issued a warning of an increased terrorist threat.
The Real IRA told a Sunday newspaper last weekend that it was going on the offensive again.
The terror group said police officers would be the primary targets and the aim was to bring soldiers back onto the streets and shatter what it termed the `facade of normality`.
So that when the public hears IRA they think Osama. How.. very well played.. on Englands part anyways.
