Four people have been arrested in connection with the Claudy Bomb which killed nine people in July 1972.

The Claudy attack was a combination of three car bombs which killed six people when they exploded. Three others later died from their injuries.

The bombing was blamed on the IRA. Among the victims were nine-year-old Katyrn Eakin who was cleaning the windows of a family shop and 16-year-old William Temple who was doing his milk round in the village.

Detectives investigating the bombing arrested the three men and one woman early this morning.

A 67-year-old man and a 60-year-old man were arrested in Dungiven in Co Derry. A 50-year-old man was arrested in the Claudy area and a 58-year-old woman was arrested in Dungannon, Co Tyrone.

All four are being held at Antrim Police Station.
