Two men, aged 32 and 26, have been charged with attempted murder over an attack in the County Fermanagh village of Garrison

One shot was fired at undercover police on Saturday. Police fired two shots in return but nobody was hurt.

Both men will appear in court in Dungannon later. They have also been charged with firearms offences.

The 26-year-old is further charged with using a firearm with intent to resist arrest.

Three other men arrested after the incident were released without charge on Monday.

Two were arrested by the PSNI in Fermanagh and one by Irish police in County Leitrim.

Meanwhile, the police are appealing for information about a car thought to be linked to the shooting.

They want to hear from anyone who saw a blue Vauxhall Astra, registration UBZ 6206, in the Fermanagh area on Saturday 21 November.
