A woman who lost her brother in the Omagh bomb has challenged councillors who voted to oppose the extradition of a man found liable for the atrocity to talk about human rights while looking her in the eye.

The vote by members of a Fermanagh and Omagh Council committee on the motion, involving Liam Campbell, has caused fury.

Campbell was previously found liable, along with convicted Real IRA leader Michael McKevitt, for the 1998 bombing. It followed a landmark civil trial by some of the families.
