A man held by police investigating the murder of journalist Veronica Guerin appeared in court in Dublin yesterday on drugs-related charges.

The man, in his late fifties, was arrested together with a woman when he left a ferry from Holyhead, Anglesey, at the Co Dublin port of Dun Laoghaire. All but two of six people detained for questioning in connection with the murder in recent days - including the woman - were released early yesterday. Ms Guerin, an investigative crime reporter, was shot dead at the wheel of her car in Dublin last June. Police have questioned almost 150 people about the killing, but so far only one man has been charged with her murder.
