Detectives have issued a fresh appeal for help to catch the killers of an IRA man shot during a violent confrontation between republican factions in south Armagh.

The request for information about the murder of Keith Rogers follows a review of the case by the PSNI's new Legacy Investigation Branch (LIB).

The 24-year-old, from just across the border in Co Louth, was shot during the clash in the village of Cullaville in March 2003.

Two other men were injured in the shooting at a petrol station in the Malachy Conlon Park residential area. Mr Rogers died in hospital.

Detective Chief Inspector Peter Montgomery, from the LIB, said: "To date, five people have been arrested in connection with Keith's murder and one person has been arrested in relation to an attempted abduction linked to the incident but no-one has been charged.

"There are people out there who know what happened that morning and we know they have information which could help us bring people before the courts."
