Man charged with murder of two RUC officers

A man from Lurgan, Co Armagh was yesterday charged with the murders of two RUC officers who were shot dead by the IRA in the town earlier this month. They died when gunmen approached them from behind and shot them in the head.

The man charged, Colin Duffy, was last year released when an appeal court overturned a conviction for the 1993 murder of a former member of the security forces. His solicitor said yesterday that he had no part in the killings of the policemen and would be strenuously denying the charge.
