Claire Monteith, who lost her brother Alan in the Omagh bombing

A woman who lost her brother in the Omagh bombing is to contact the Local Government Commissioner over a council vote to oppose the extradition of the alleged bomber.

Liam Campbell was found civilly liable for the 1998 atrocity, which claimed the lives of 29 people including a woman pregnant with twins, and injured 220 others.

Last week a committee at Omagh and Fermanagh council voted to oppose Campbell's extradition to Lithuania, over allegations he was part of an operation to buy guns and bombs for the Real IRA.
