Two more men released from questioning about McGuigan death

The political turmoil in the North has been caused by the recent murder of ex IRA member Kevin McGuigan in Belfast.

The DUP claims it shows the IRA is still active, but Sinn Fein, which has condemned the murder, denies the paramilitary organisation is operational.

This evening detectives investigating Mr McGuigan's death released senior Sinn Fein member Bobby Storey, without charge.

A second man in his 40s and a third man were also released within this evening.

They had been arrested over the last two days by Serious Crime Branch detectives.

The DUP claims the arrests show the IRA is still active, but Sinn Fein, which has condemned the murder of Mr McGuigan, denies the paramilitary organisation is operational.

One woman is still being held.
