Priest in Derry to meet dissident families

A priest in Derry who challenged dissident republicans over their violence is to meet families who claim they are being harassed by the PSNI.

Fr Paddy O'Kane from Ballymagroarty agreed to the meeting after talks with the 32 County Sovereignty Committee.

During the talks, he said he criticised those behind the bomb attack on Strand Road police station and recent hoax bomb alerts.

However, he said he had a pastoral duty to listen to the families' concerns.
