Protestant flees dissident threat


A Protestant man has fled his home in Londonderry after receiving death threats from dissident republicans.

The man said he was told by the police last week that his life was in danger.

He recently moved to the city from the Greater Belfast area, and believes he was attacked for being "a Protestant living in a republican area".

"There's peace in the country now, but they want to stay wrapped up in their sick and twisted little minds, and keep us all in the past," he said.

"They can't come to terms with the fact that this country has moved on."
