A man has been arrested over the paramilitary murders of two Catholic men in Belfast almost 20 years ago.

Gary Convie and Eamon Fox, from Maghery, Co Armagh, were shot while sitting in a car at a building site in North Queen Street on 17 May 1994. The gunman used a sub-machinegun.

The arrested man, who is 42, was detained in north Belfast on Monday morning on suspicion of the murders.

He is also being questioned about the attempted murder of a third man and membership of the UVF.

Mr Convie, 24, and Mr Fox, 44, were builders who were attacked while eating their lunch in a car parked close to their building site.

One man has already been convicted in connection with the murders.
