A 21-year-old man arrested as part of an investigation into dissident republican activity in Londonderry has been released without charge.

The probe is linked to a paramilitary-style assault in the city on June 7, when a youth was found with puncture wounds to his shins on the Hollyhall Road.

The assault took place during disorder in the city following the funeral of 18-year-old Caoimhin Cassidy, who died when the stolen car he was in crashed and caught fire on June 1.

Masked men also smashed up a house in Creggan and there was reports of masked men patrolling the area.

Detectives detained the 21-year-old man under the Terrorism Act on Thursday following the search of house in the Creggan area. He was released without charge on Thursday evening.
