Man arrested over murder of soldiers in N Ireland
London: Police in Northern Ireland have arrested a man in connection with the murder of two soldiers in March, they said on Sunday.
The 51-year-old man is being questioned about the murders of sappers Patrick Azimkar and Mark Quinsey, gunned down on March 7 outside the Massereene Barracks in Antrim, northwest of Belfast, as they collected a pizza delivery.
The man is also being questioned over the attempted killing of five others at the same time, the Police Service of Northern Ireland said.
Prominent dissident republican Colin Duffy, 41, was charged with the murders in March, while a 44-year-old man was charged with the killings in July.
Three decades of sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland largely ended with the signing of the Good Friday peace accords in 1998, which paved the way for a power-sharing government between Protestant and Catholic parties.
