A 43-YEAR-OLD MAN will appear in court today charged in connection with the Omagh bombing which killed 29 people.

The man has been named as Seamus Daly of Culloville in Monaghan, who was one of four men ordered to pay more than £1.5 million in damages to the families of the victims in a landmark civil case.

He was arrested in Newry on Monday, the PSNI said.

“Detectives from the Serious Crime Branch investigating the 1998 Omagh bombing have charged a 43-year-old man with the murders of the 29 people who died in the explosion and a number of other offences,” said a statement.

As well as the 29 counts of murder linked to the Real IRA bombing in August 1998, he faces two charges in relation to the bombing and two further charges in relation to an attempted bombing in April 1998.

He will appear in Dungannon Magistrates Court today. Nobody has ever been convicted of the bombing in a criminal court.
