Two men arrested by detectives investigating the murder of Jim Donegan outside a west Belfast school have been released unconditionally.

The men, aged 53 and 39, had been arrested on Friday under the Terrorism Act in connection to the murder.

Jim Donegan, 43, was shot dead as he waited to collect his 13-year-old son from St Mary's Christian Brothers Grammar School in west Belfast in December.

Detectives said the same killer had been waiting for his victim at the scene five days earlier, but Mr Donegan did not pick up his son that day.

People arrested under terrorism legislation must be charged, released pending report to the Public Prosecution Service or released unconditionally – bail is not permitted under this legislation.
