Tommy Crossan: Paramilitary funeral of murdered dissident republican takes place in west Belfast

A number of masked men have led the funeral procession of former dissident republican chief Tommy Crossan who was gunned down in west Belfast last week.

Friends and family joined masked men in flanking the coffin of Tommy Crossan, ahead of his funeral at St John the Evangelist Church on the Falls Road.

Crossan, a former chief of the Continuity IRA, was shot twice in the head and several times the body in the Good Friday gun attack in west Belfast.

The father-of-six, from the Falls Road, is believed to have been killed by former republican associates he had fallen out with.
