Three men who had been arrested under the Terrorism Act by the PSNI in connection with a dissident republican parade in Londonderry on Easter Monday have since been released.

Police confirmed on Wednesday evening the men have been released pending a report to the Public Prosecution Service.

The men aged 21, 24 and 50-years-old had been held by police following a number of property searches in the Cookstown and Coalisland areas.

The commemoration in April was organised by Saoradh, which is accused of having links with the New IRA.

The Parades Commission had ruled that no paramilitary-style clothing be worn in the procession.

The Unfinished Revolution National Easter Commemoration parade ended at Derry City Cemetery where an address was delivered.
