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.

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.
