RAAD denies any involvement in Derry GAA blaze

Republican Action Against Drugs has rejected Sinn Fein claims that it was behind a fire at a GAA club in Derry on Wednesday.

The police yesterday ruled the fire as not suspicious but today changed their stance to suspected arson  - an internal investigation has been launched to look at the police handling of the situation.

Sinn Fein's Raymond McCartney went as far as to suggest police were involved in a cover up of the actions of RAAD in the blaze which broke out at Sean Dolan's in Creggan:

RAAD said in a statement that it had nothing to do with the fire and accused Sinn Fein of causing tension by creating stories and false accusations adding it will always claim any actions it carries out.
