The PSNI has confirmed that two men, aged 18 and 19, have been arrested over the killing of journalist Lyra McKee on Thursday night.

29-year-old Lyra was shot during rioting in the Creggan area of Derry and later died at Altnagelvin Hospital after being brought there by police.

This morning, the PSNI stated that the two arrested men were being detained under the terrorism act.

Since Lyra’s passing, political leaders at home and abroad have condemned the act, with former U.S. President Bill Clinton posting that he was ‘heartbroken’ at the news but urged people not to let go of peace.

Yesterday, a vigil held at the site of Lyra’s killing was attended by the DUP’s Arlene Foster, Sinn Féin’s Mary Lou McDonald and other political leaders from across Northern Ireland.
