THE man accused of building the bomb used to kill 29 people in Omagh has been arrested by anti-terrorist police.
Joseph Patrick ‘Mooch’ Blair was arrested in Newry four days after a senior dissident Seamus Daly, was charged with murdering 29 people in the 1998 terrorist attack.
Blair was named in the House of Commons in 2002 by unionist MP Jeffrey Donaldson as the man who made the bomb.
The PSNI said officers “investigating dissident republican terrorist activity have arrested a 58 year old man in Newry”.
He is being held in Antrim police station for questioning.
