MAN DUE IN COURT IN CONNECTION WITH THE OMAGH BOMBING

A 43 year old man is due in court this morning charged in connection with The Omagh Bombing.

The 1998 explosion killed 29 people including a woman pregnant with twins.

Seamus Daly of Cullaville, Co Monaghan is due before Dungannon Magistrates Court this morning charged with 29 counts of murder.

There are two charges related to the explosion in Omagh and two others relating to an attempted explosion in Lisburn four months earlier – a total of 33 charges.

The 1998 explosion in Omagh has been described as the worst single terrorist attack of the Northern Ireland troubles, coming just months after the Good Friday agreement.

No-one has ever been successfully convicted of the bombing in a criminal court.

Seamus Daly is due to appear in court in Dungannon later today.
