Pro-IRA graffiti in the place where Journalist Lyra McKee was murdered in Derry has appeared. The painted signs emerged in the Creggan area.
The graffiti serves as a warning to the community against helping the police. On one of the walls, a message reads “Informers will be executed”, and another states “IRA here to stay”.

The slogans were spotted earlier this morning in the Creggan area, a short distance from where Ms McKee was shot on April 18th.
The slogans appeared on Thursday morning metres from where journalist Lyra McKee was killed. One includes a picture of a rat, with the message “Informers will be shot. IRA” and another says “RUC Informers: They will forget about you, we won’t. IRA.” https://t.co/nuaDRbln7p

The journalist was murdered by a dissident republican connected to the New IRA. The gunman had fired bullets at police lines during disturbances over the Easter weekend.
