Three men arrested over loyalist UDA rampage in Larne

Three men have been arrested under terrorism laws over rioting in Larne earlier this year.

Police blamed the south east Antrim faction of the UDA for violent disturbances that erupted in the town in March.

Up to 100 people were involved in the violence.

Three men - aged 34, 38 and 45 - were arrested this morning in connection with the disturbances.

A total of 32 people have now been held in connection with the violence, where masked men wrecked houses and attacked police.

One man was seriously injured and a police officer suffered an eye wound.
