Gardai probe link between burn victims and Armagh attack

Gardai and the PSNI are trying to establish if four men being treated for serious burns in Dublin are linked to a horrific vigilante attack on a couple in Co Armagh.

A 21-year-old woman is critically ill in hospital and her 33-year-old partner is also seriously injured after the pair were doused with petrol and set alight at their home near the village of Keady on Monday night.

The cottage was also burned to the ground during the attack, which was carried out by a gang of six men.

Four men, believed to be brothers, subsequently admitted themselves to hospital in Dundalk with serious burns and were later transferred to Dublin for specialist treatment.
