Police arrest suspected Real IRA chieftain near Northern Ireland border

Police arrested a suspected chief of the dissident “Real” Irish Republican Army on Tuesday and said he would be charged with terrorism-related offenses. Seamus Daly, 32, has long been on the police’s list of suspects responsible for the 1998 Real IRA car-bombing of Omagh, which was the deadliest attack in the past 33 years of civil unrest in Northern Ireland. The blast tore apart the main shopping street of the religiously mixed town, killing 29 people — mostly women and children — and wounding more than 330 others. Police said they arrested Daly near his home in rural County Monaghan, bordering Northern Ireland, in response to a warrant issued by Dublin’s three-judge Special Criminal Court. He was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday on unspecified charges before the judges, who handle most terror-related cases in Ireland without a jury. Full Story
