Police investigating the murder of Veronica Guerin, the Irish crime journalist, yesterday made nine arrests.

Officers detained five men and four women, aged between 30 and 50, in raids in Dublin. The nine, who were being questioned at police stations in the city, were suspected of having links to figures behind the murder of Ms Guerin last year.

Members of the group were being questioned in connection with continuing inquiries into the activities of drugs gang bosses, and into alleged drugs, money-laundering and firearms offences.

So far one man has been charged with murdering Ms Guerin.
