Pair held over city flat murder

Scene of the body find
The 29-year-old was found dead in a flat in north Belfast

The death of a man whose body was found in a flat in north Belfast is being treated as murder following a post-mortem examination, police have said.

The 29-year-old man, who is understood to be Polish, was found in the property in the Cliftonville Road area at about 1930 BST on Saturday.

A 28-year-old woman and a 26-year-old man were arrested in connection with his death on Sunday night.

Police have appealed for anyone with information to contact them.

They are particularly interested in hearing from anyone who saw people entering or leaving 39 Cliftonville Road on Saturday evening.

Officers conducted house-to-house inquiries in the area at the weekend and an alleyway at the back of the flat was cordoned off.

The victim is the third man from the Polish community to have been murdered here in just over a month.

Twenty-six-year-old Kzrysztof Zlotnicki was killed in Newtownards on 16 June and forty-year-old Marek Muszynski in Newry on 7 July.
