An Armagh pensioner has said his young autistic granddaughter could have been killed after two family homes were callously attacked.

Gerald Stevenson, who is 76, was speaking after "explosive-type devices" were hurled at both his house and that of his daughter Jill (35), the mother of 11-year-old Eva, on Wednesday evening.

Mr Stevenson said he believes the attacks are part of "an ongoing hate campaign" against his family but he added that the latest incidents have taken "this feud" too far.
