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 Police Service of Northern Ireland'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 incident at a petrol station in the Malachy Conlon Park residential area.

Mr Rogers died later 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.

"Legacy Investigation Branch have carried out a review of Keith's murder and as a result, are now appealing for information.

"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 court."
