Men released after ‘paramilitary’ raids (UTV)

Two men, who were arrested in west Belfast following two searches by police investigating suspected paramilitary activity, have now been released.

One of them, aged 39, was released pending a report to the Public Prosecution Service, while the other, who is 47, was released unconditionally.

It followed a security operation at Norglen Crescent earlier on Thursday, during which officers from the Serious Crime Branch discovered a “suspicious object”.

The army bomb squad was tasked to the scene and the area was closed to traffic for a time, however all cordons have now been lifted.

A number of items were taken away for further examination.

Police said: “A security operation at Norglen Crescent, which followed searches by detectives from Serious Crime Branch investigating paramilitary-style attacks, has ended.”

A spokesman added that there are no further details at present.
