Lyra McKee murder: Police concern over ‘new breed of terrorists’ | UK News
A senior police officer has expressed his concern at “a new breed of terrorists coming through the ranks” following the murder of journalist Lyra McKee.
The comments come after two teenagers were arrested under the Terrorism Act in connection with the killing as the reporter, 29, covered disturbances on the Creggan estate in Londonderry on Thursday night.
She was shot in the head and died later in hospital.
The men, aged 18 and 19, were held by detectives from the Police Service of Northern Ireland’s major investigation team and were taken to a police station in Belfast for questioning.
