Three arrests over 1984 murder by UVF


Three men have been arrested in connection with the murder of two Catholic workmen in 1984.

Eamon Fox, 44, and Gary Convie, 24, from Co Armagh were shot dead by the UVF

at North Queen Street as they ate their lunch.

The men arrested this morning are aged 43-years, 52-years and 65-years.

The arrests were made in Templepatrick, Newtownabbey and Antrim.

The arrests were made as part of Operation Stafford, an investigation into a series of murders and serious crimes by the UVF in north Belfast.

One man previously convicted in connection with the murders has since died.

A second man who appeared in court earlier this year charged with murder is currently on bail.
