Three held over 1994 UVF double murder of Gary Convie and Eamon Fox

BY CHRIS KILPATRICK

Three men remained in police custody last night in connection with the UVF murders of two Catholic workmen 20 years ago.

Eamon Fox (44) and Gary Convie (24) were shot dead by the loyalist terror gang at North Queen Street, Belfast in May 1994.

The men, aged 43, 52, and 65, were arrested in Templepatrick, Newtownabbey and Antrim yesterday morning.

Mr Fox and Mr Convie were builders from County Armagh who were attacked while eating their lunch in their car at a building site.

The arrests are part of Operation Stafford, an investigation into a series of murders and other serious crimes by the UVF in north Belfast.
