One man freed, two still in custody following anti RAAD operation

One man was released last night and two remain in custody following a police operation in Derry on Thursday night.

Five assault rifles and three handguns were seized in in what's been described as a major police operation targeting the vigilante group Republican Action Against Drugs.

PSNI Chief Constable Matt Baggott said the operation was aimed at tackling punishment shootings in Derry, and described the seizures as significant.
