A 33-year-old man has been charged with the murder of a teenager in west Belfast 11 years ago.

Damien Duffy, 18, was beaten and stabbed during a confrontation between two groups of people on the Stewartstown Road on 20 May 2001.

He died two weeks later. No-one has been convicted of his murder.

The man was arrested after the police reopened its investigation earlier this month. He is due to appear at Lisburn Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

A 37-year-old man arrested on Tuesday has been released, pending reports.
