Police in the North say the Major Investigation Team have arrested two men, aged 18 and 19 under the Terrorism Act in connection with the murder of Lyra McKee 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. A minute's silence will be held before a separate rally in Belfast over citizen's rights after Brexit.
