DETECTIVES from the PSNI’s Terrorist Investigation Unit investigating a gun attack at a house in north Belfast last month have arrested three men.
The men, aged 31, 33 and 41 were arrested during searches at four properties in the north and west of the city earlier today.
The gun attack – first revealed by Belfast Daily at the time – was blamed on dissident republican group Oglaigh na hEireaan (ONH).
Detective Superintendent Kevin Geddes, from Serious Crime Branch said: “The suspects are being interviewed at Antrim police station about a gun attack at a house in Velsheda Court on 3 September.
“A young family who were home at the time escaped injury.
“Police enquiries are continuing and I would ask anyone with information about the incident to contact police.”
The men can be held under the Terrorism Act for up to 48 hours before being either released or charge.
Police can also apply to a court for an extension to their detention.
