Detective Inspector Deborah Eakin said: “The male was detained in Armagh this morning on suspicion of a number of offences including the murder of three police officers and a Catholic nun in an explosion on the Killylea Road in Armagh on 24 July 1990.
“He has been taken to the Serious Crime Suite at Musgrave Police Station in Belfast for questioning.”
Constable William Hanson, Reserve Constable Joshua Willis, Reserve Constable David Sterrit and Sister Catherine Dunne were killed when a landmine detonated on the Killylea Road 27 years ago. Another woman was also seriously injured in the blast.
