Chilling IRA threats yards from where Lyra murdered.


BY AOIFE MOORE PRO-IRA graffiti has appeared yards from the spot where journalist Lyra McKee was gunned down by dissident republicans.

The sinister slogans warn people in Derry against helping the police, adding: "Informers will be executed."

The messages appeared yesterday morning in the Creggan area, close to where Lyra, 29, inset, was killed by the New IRA during a riot on April 18. A shocked resident branded the dissidents "scum". They said: "I cannot believe them, it's only the second week since Lyra was killed here. They have no shame."

Pro-IRA slogans that had been painted over in the days after the shooting were restored, saying the dissidents "aren't done" and are an "undefeated army".

The graffiti comes as the PSNI offered anonymity for anyone who comes foward with evidence about the death.

Police have made several arrests while Crimestoppers said it will hand over [euro]11,000 for information leading to a conviction.
