McGuinness dodges the bullets

Martin McGuinness refused to describe the killing of mum-of-10 Jean McConville as murder.

He dodged questions on her murder during the debate.

He said that the McConville family might describe her death as murder and he wouldn't disagree with them.

However, he refused to describe it as that himself. The mother was abducted, murdered and buried by the IRA during the Troubles.
