A RALLY WILL be held in Omagh this afternoon in memory of the police constable Ronan Kerr who died when a car-bomb exploded outside his home in the town last Saturday.
Hundreds of people are expected to walk through the Co Tyrone town in what organisers have called a walk for peace aimed at sending message at those who wish to create violence in Northern Ireland, the BBC reports.
The death of the 25-year-old Catholic Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) officer has been widely condemned
Three men have been arrested in connection with the death.
Yesterday the PSNI confirmed that 500lb bomb was found in a van under the main Belfast to Dublin road near Newry.
Several controlled explosions were carried out on the device which police said could have caused huge devastation and loss of life on a scale similar to the 1998 bombing in Omagh town centre, which killed 29 people including a woman who was pregnant with twins.
