Man charged over dissident republican funeral incident

A man has been charged in connection with a dissident republican show of strength at the funeral of an IRA killer.

The 38-year-old is accused of a number of firearms and terrorism offences in relation to the incident in Strabane last October when three masked gunmen fired a volley of shots over the coffin of John Brady, 40.

Brady, who was jailed for killing a police officer during the Troubles, hung himself in custody after being detained over a domestic dispute.

The accused is due in court in Omagh on Saturday.
