Four men have been arrested in Londonderry under the Terrorism Act in connection with the spring 2019 killing of gay journalist Lyra McKee.


The 29-year-old was shot during rioting in Derry's Creggan estate on 18 April last year, with the New IRA taking responsibility for her death.

The four men who have been arrested range in age between 20 and 52. 


Ms McKee, who was named Sky News' young journalist of the year in 2006, was standing near a police vehicle when she received a fatal injury as a masked gunman opened fire on officers and onlookers.
