Sinn Fein supporters have gathered in West Belfast to hear the Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland condemn the "political policing" that led to the arrest of Gerry Adams.
Speaking to the large assembled crowd, many of whom held banners calling for the release of Adams, Martin McGuinness said:
"The arrest of Gerry Adams is evidence of that fact that there is an element in the PSNI who are against the peace process and hate Gerry Adams and hate Sinn Fein.
"They are what the reformers within the PSNI have described to us as the 'Dark Side'."
