>> From jail time to the halls of power in Northern Ireland, Sinn Fein's Martin McGuinness has died aged 66. The BBC reporting that he had been suffering from a rare heart condition. Now his death robs Belfast of a legendary figure. McGuinness was once a commander in the Irish Republican Army back when it was conducting a relentless bombing campaign.
He served two jail sentences in connection with the group. Later, he embraced the peace process playing a key part in the signing of the 1998 Good Friday Agreement which helped in decades of the so called troubles. In 2007, he became Deputy First Minister or co-leader of Northern Ireland.
Serving alongside unionists including Ian Paisley. It was a partnership of former sworn enemies that wouldn't have seemed incredible just a few years earlier. MCGuinness stood down from his post in January in protest over the handling of an energy scandal by the current unionist leader Arlene Foster.
