UK - Derry: Man arrested after shots fired at republican mural

The incident took place near a mural of former INLA prisoner Michael Devine in the Galliagh area of Derry

A man has been arrested in connection with shots fired at a commemoration in Londonderry last Friday.

The 30-year-old man was arrested under the Terrorism Act after a raid on a house in Derry on Saturday evening.

Footage on social media had showed two masked men firing shots in front of a mural of INLA hunger striker Michael Devine in Galliagh.

A number of items were also seized and the man has been taken to Musgrave Police Station for questioning.

Unionist politicians had criticised the police response and called for a full investigation.

Police said there was "a significant police operation in place" at the time of the incident.
