Northern Ireland trio held on terrorism offences released

Three people arrested in Northern Ireland under the Terrorism Act on Monday have been released unconditionally.

Two men aged 39 and 56 and a 56 year old woman were released on Wednesday morning.

Those arrested under The Terrorism Act must either be charged or released unconditionally. Bail is not permitted under the legislation.

Police said interviews under arrest are a key part of all investigative strategies and the the service is "committed to following all lines of enquiry to keep our communities safe from those who would seek to cause serious harm".
