Northern Irish police arrest man over Lyra McKee murder

June 6, 2019

LONDON (Reuters) – Police investigating the murder of journalist Lyra McKee in Northern Ireland have arrested a 46-year-old man under counter-terrorism legislation, broadcaster Sky News reported on Thursday.

McKee’s killing in April by an Irish nationalist militant during a riot in the city sparked outrage in the province where a 1998 peace deal mostly ended three decades of sectarian violence that cost the lives of some 3,600 people.
