Sinn Fein was split last night as Fermanagh and Omagh District Council rejected a motion opposing the extradition of a dissident republican held liable for the Omagh bombing.

Liam Campbell, from Dundalk, is wanted in Lithuania over allegations he was part of an operation to buy guns and bombs for the Real IRA.

Last month, Dublin’s High Court ordered Campbell’s extradition to the Baltic state.
