"The New IRA" admits responsibility for the death of journalist in Northern Ireland (media)
The Police Service of Northern Ireland says two men aged 18 and 19 who were arrested by detectives investigating the murder of journalist Lyra McKee in Londonderry on Thursday have been released without charge
Northern Ireland police arrest two over murder of journalist
A crowd has turned out to the Creggan area of Derry after Journalist Lyra McKee was shot dead last night, including @sinnfeinireland's Michelle O'Neill and @DUPleader.
The rioters then appear to have stolen two vehicles, a white van and a black car, and set them on fire at the junction of Fanad Drive and Central Drive.
It was after this that Lyra McKee was shot. A Facebook livestream appears to have filmed this event. You can hear shots, screams, and then the camera turns to point at a person lying on the ground next to a @PoliceServiceNI vehicle.
This appears to be a much more likely origin of the shots that killed Lyra.
