Three arrested over fatal stabbing
Three people have been arrested on suspicion of murder after the death of a man during a stabbing incident in Belfast last night.
The victim, 21, was attacked at Castlereagh Place, according to PSNI detective chief inspector Alan Dickson.
He said: "Two men aged 21 and 25 and a 25-year-old woman have been arrested on suspicion of murder and are currently assisting police with their inquiries."
DUP MLA Robin Newton said: "There can be no justifiable reason for the taking of a young man's life. This awful incident will cause agonising heartache for family and friends."
He said the carrying of knives was a worrying trend.
"As the police investigate this murder they will need the support of anyone who has even a small piece of information about this terrible confrontation."
