A man questioned today about the Omagh bomb massacre was later released without charge.

The PSNI said it was the second time the 37-year-old from south Armagh had been detained for questioning over the August 1998 attack.

After being held for several hours at Antrim he was freed.

Twenty-nine people, including a woman pregnant with twins, were killed in the no warning Real IRA car bombing in the Tyrone town in August 1998.

More than 300 other people were injured.

A second man, also from south Armagh, is expected to be charged later this month  in connection with the atrocity.
