The ninth man to be arrested by police following a dissident republican parade in Londonderry on Easter Monday (April 18) has been released.

The 22-year-old man was arrested under the Terrorism Act following a search of a house in the Creggan area of the city on Friday.

He has now been released pending a report to the Public Prosecution Service.

The man has been taken to Belfast’s Musgrave Crime Suite for questioning.

The commemoration last month 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.
