Murdered man Christopher Meli's friends plan tribute

By Allan Preston

Friends of a young man murdered in west Belfast last weekend will host an emotional tribute tomorrow night with a memorial car cruise.

Christopher Meli (20), was beaten to death after getting caught up in a fight involving 20 people in the Twinbrook area.

Well known for his love of cars, his friends have planned a memorial drive, starting in west Belfast, in his honour.

Ten people have been arrested in connection with his murder so far, with three remaining in custody.

Mr Meli's funeral is to take place on Monday.

A Requiem Mass will be said at noon in the Church of the Annunciation, New Barnsley Green, followed by burial in the City Cemetery, Belfast.
