Seven replica handguns, which can be converted into lethal weapons, have been recovered by the Garda Special Branch as part of a crackdown on the Continuity IRA.
Detectives seized the firearms and a quantity of ammunition during searches in south Dublin.
Last night, a well known dissident republican in his 60s and four other suspects in their 20s, three men and a women, were being held for questioning under section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act.
