Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness has challenged political rivals making claims about Sinn Fein links to criminality to "put up or shut up".

It comes as cross-party talks got under way in Belfast to save the power sharing administration amid a crisis over an IRA-linked murder.

Sinn Fein's Mr McGuinness said: "Some parties within these negotiations are attempting to give the impression that there's linkage between a party in government - what they mean by that is Sinn Fein - and criminality.

"During the course of this morning's engagement I took those people to task. I told them if anybody has any information whatsoever about any party in government being involved in criminality that they should put it up on the table and, more importantly, they should put it to the PSNI.

"In other words I told them it is now time for them to put up or shut up."

Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) leader has been discharged from hospital.

Peter Robinson, 66, was admitted to Belfast's Royal Victoria Hospital on Saturday as a "precautionary measure" after reacting to medication.

A DUP spokesman said he would be fit enough to attend crucial talks to resolve the political crisis engulfing the powersharing political institutions at Stormont today.

He said: "Mr Robinson expresses his gratitude to the medical staff who treated him so professionally during his short stay in hospital and the ambulance staff who were the first responders."
