Three held over soldiers’ murders (BBC News)
Three men have been arrested over the murder of two soldiers at Massereene Army barracks in Antrim last weekend.
The men aged 41, 32 and 21, were arrested in the Lurgan and Bellaghy areas. They are currently being questioned at Antrim police station.
Sappers Mark Quinsey, 23, from Birmingham and Patrick Azimkar, 21, from Wood Green, London, were shot dead at the base on 7 March.
Four other people, including two pizza delivery men, were injured.
The soldiers were attacked after coming out of the base to collect pizzas they had ordered.
As they did so, two gunmen in a car parked nearby opened fire with semi-automatic rifles.
The dissident republican group, the Real IRA, said it carried out the attack.
The soldiers, from 25 Field Squadron of 38 Engineer Regiment, were murdered just hours before they were to have been deployed in Afghanistan.
