Sinn Féin's Martin McGuinness, Northern Ireland's former deputy first minister, has died aged 66.

McGuinness died early this morning at Derry's Altnagelvin Hospital with his family by his bedside.

According to BBC, he was suffering from a rare heart condition.

The former IRA leader turned peacemaker worked at the heart of the power-sharing government following the 1998 Good Friday Agreement.

He became deputy first minister in 2007, standing alongside Democratic Unionist Party leaders Ian Paisley, Peter Robinson and Arlene Foster.
