Man arrested over paramilitary displays during veteran republican's funeral

A 40-year-old man has been arrested by police investigating paramilitary displays during the wake and funeral of a veteran republican.

The suspect was detained by the PSNI's serious crime branch in Londonderry.

He has been taken into custody at Musgrave Police Station in Belfast for questioning.

Police said a number of searches were being carried out at locations across Derry.

Dozens of people wearing military-style uniform, berets and dark glasses attended the service for Peggy O'Hara in July.

Mrs O'Hara was the mother of an Irish National Liberation Army (INLA) man who died in the 1981 hunger strike.
