Bobby Moffett

A man has been arrested in connection with the murder of Bobby Moffett in Belfast in May, 2010.

The 26-year-old was arrested in the Antrim area on Wednesday morning.

Former loyalist prisoner, Moffett, was shot in broad daylight on the Shankill Road in May 2010.

The International Monitoring Commission said the killing was sanctioned by the UVF. A number of people have been arrested but no-one has been charged.

The 26-year-old is the tenth person to be arrested in connection with the murder.

One man has been charged with possession of items useful to terrorism, though police said this is not directly related to the murder of Moffett.

The eight others were released unconditionally.
