A BULLET and a sympathy card were sent in the post to SDLP MLA Patsy McGlone.
A package, containing his name and picture, was intercepted at the Royal Mail sorting office in Mallusk.
The Mid-Ulster assembly member said whoever sent the sinister threat were “faceless fascists”.
In recent weeks, a number of Northern Ireland politicians have received bullets in the post.
Mr McGlone said: “This is obviously not something that is a pleasant experience, for me or my family.
“However, those who sent it will not put me off doing my job, that is representing the people of Mid Ulster.
“I would like to pay tribute to the staff at the Post Office and the PSNI for their professionalism and vigilance in dealing with this matter.”
Alliance MP Naomi Long, party leader David Ford and councillor Gerardine Mulvenna were among those sent bullets in the post in recent times.
Sinn Fein’s Gerry Kelly and Alex Maskey also received a letter containing bullets.
They were intercepted at Stormont Buildings by security staff.
