London: Police in Northern Ireland have arrested two men in connection with the attempted murder of a police officer in east Belfast.

Police today said the men aged 25 and 34 were arrested late yesterday in the Belfast area. They have not been identified. The arrests are part of the investigation into an attempt to kill an off-duty police officer at his home in east Belfast.
