Northern Ireland police attacked by gangs: hit by petrol bombs
Police in Northern Ireland have been attacked by gangs hurling petrol bombs after they arrested three men following the murder of two soldiers last week.
The men are being questioned about the murders at an Army base in Northern Ireland a week ago.
The three, aged 41, 32 and 21, were arrested in the Lurgan area of Co Armagh and in Bellaghy, Co Londonderry. They are being held at Antrim police station.
It has emerged that the attacks were due to the fact that a leading Republican figure, former IRA prisoner Colin Duffy, had been arrested.
The arrests occured before the prayer service to honour the victims.
The two men were shot after they came out to get what they thought was their pizza delivery. The Real IRA has said that they are responsible.
