Police have arrested four men in Northern Ireland on Wednesday in connection with the murder of journalist Lyra McKee, committed in April 2019.
Held under the 2006 anti-terrorism law, their identities have not been disclosed. They are between 19 and 33 years old and are being questioned at a Belfast police station.
Shots from the New IRA
McKee died in the town of Derry, in the northwest of the British province, by gunfire during riots by members of the so-called New IRA, dissidents who do not accept the Northern Irish peace plan for Good Friday.
The journalist was 29 years old. So far a man, Paul McIntyre, had been charged with his death.
The Northern Irish police have appreciated the collaboration and patience of citizens in these two years of investigation, which continues after the arrests.
