A 44-year-old man arrested by police investigating the murders of two soldiers has been released without charge.

The soldiers died and five other people were injured during the attack at Massereene Barracks in Antrim in March.

The man was arrested in Magherafelt, County Londonderry, on Friday morning.

Sappers Mark Quinsey, 23, from Birmingham, and Patrick Azimkar, 21, from London, were shot dead as they collected pizzas outside the base.

One man, Lurgan-based dissident republican Colin Duffy, has been charged with the murders.

The Real IRA claimed responsibility for the attack.
