A 22-year-old man has been arrested by police investigating the murder of John Mongan in February 2008.

Mr Mongan, a father of three, suffered between 40 and 50 wounds inflicted by at least two bladed weapons, possibly an axe and a sword.

He was killed in front of his pregnant wife and his seven-year-old daughter at their Fallswater Street home in west Belfast.

In December 2009, three men were convicted of the murder.
