Another arrest in O’Hagan murder investigation

Police in the North have arrested another man in connection with the murder of Sunday World journalist Martin O'Hagan in Co Armagh seven years ago.

The 28-year-old was detained yesterday by officers conducting a retrospective review of the killing.

A 40-year-old man who was arrested in connection with the case last Friday also remains in PSNI custody.

Mr O'Hagan, who wrote a series of articles investigating paramilitary activity, was shot dead by loyalists while walking home from a pub in Lurgan with his wife in September 2001.

Two men were charged with his murder last week, while another two men were charged with lesser related offences.
