Five men face dissident republican charges (BBC News Northern Ireland)

Five men arrested as part of an investigation across Northern Ireland into dissident republicans have been charged with a range of offences.
A 47-year-old arrested on Monday in Lurgan, County Armagh, faces the rarely used charge of directing terrorism.
He and two men aged 41 and 42 are to appear in court in Lisburn, charged with offences including conspiracy to murder and to cause an explosion.
Two men arrested in County Tyrone last Saturday are due in court in Omagh.
The men, aged 33 and 34, were arrested in Carrickmore and Omagh.
Both have been charged with possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life, attendance at a place used for terrorist training and preparation of terrorist acts.
The three men appearing before Lisburn Magistrates Court on Saturday have all been charged with conspiracy to murder, conspiracy to cause an explosion, preparation of terrorist acts and collecting information of use to terrorism.
A police spokesperson said officers had “worked closely with colleagues in the Security Service and, latterly, with the Public Prosecution Service to reach a point where charges have been brought”.
A 37-year-old woman and a 46-year-old man arrested in Pomeroy and Toome last Saturday as part of the same investigation remain in custody.
