Two men have been arrested by police investigating the murder of Lyra Mc Kee. The 29 year old journalist was shot dead in Derry on Thursday.

Police in the North says the Major Investigation Team have arrested two men, aged 18 and 19 under the Terrorism Act in connection with the murder of Lyra Mc Kee.

That was in the Creggan area of Derry on Thursday. They’ve been taken to Musgrave Serious Crime Suite for questioning.

Last night detectives released CCTV footage of the shooting incident and appealed for the public’s help in tracking down those responsible.

There has been widespread condemnation of the murder of the young journalist.

A vigil will be held today in Omagh in County Tyrone later today which has been organised by the Omagh Trades Union Council and the Northwest Branch of the National Union Of Journalists.
