Judgement reserved in Omagh bombing trial

Judgement was reserved this afternoon at the Omagh bombing trial in Belfast.

37-year-old electrician Sean Hoey, from Jonesborough in South Armagh, has denied 29 counts of murder arising from the attack in August 1998.

He has also denied a series of charges relating to a campaign of bombings across the North.

Mr Justice Weir is expected to return verdicts in the next two months.
