Two teenagers aged 14 and 16 are among a number of people who have been arrested by police investigating the murder of a Chinese restaurant owner.

Nelson Cheung, 65, was killed on Thursday after robbers forced his car off the road in a remote area of Northern Ireland.

It is believed his throat was cut and that he was murdered in front of his wife.

On Sunday a 25-year-old man was arrested.

And a 30-year-old man and a 43-year-old man who had been arrested were released unconditionally.

Mr Cheung was killed on Thursday after robbers forced his car off the road in a remote area of Northern Ireland. It is believed his throat was cut and that he was murdered in front of his wife.

He had been travelling home from his business shortly after midnight on Thursday when he was stabbed after being intercepted by two vehicles on a rural road.

His wife, Winnie, was also in the car when the attack took place on the Caddy Road.

She managed to escape and was treated in hospital for knife wounds, and has since been discharged.

Police believe the couple’s car was forced off the road by two other vehicles and that they were approached by a number of people before being attacked and robbed of cash.

Police said they do not believe the killing was racially motivated.
