    Martin McGuinness, a paramilitary leader and the former deputy first minister of Northern Ireland, has died at the age of 66.

    He had suffered from a rare heart condition and stood down from politics earlier this year.

    As an education minister who had failed at school and a man who had been convicted of IRA membership, McGuinness was always a controversial figure.

    Al Jazeera's Barnaby Phillips reports from Belfast.
