More Omagh bomb arrests

The bombing left 29 people dead and injured more than 300

Police in the Irish Republic have arrested a further three people in connection with their investigation into the Omagh bombing last month.

The police used dawn raids in the town of Dundalk to take the three people in for questioning over the stolen car used by the bombers.

Dundalk is believed to be the base of several prominent supporters of the breakaway paramilitary organisation, the Real IRA.

The group said it was behind the bombing which killed 29 people and injured more than 200.

Last week a number of people were arrested on both sides of the Irish border as part of the investigation, including four members of the same family.

They were all later released without charge.
