A man, 41, was detained in the Carrickfergus area by police under the Terrorism Act on Sunday morning before a 32-year-old man was arrested in the Larne area, also under the Terrorism Act.

They are currently assisting police with their enquiries.

A woman, aged 22, was arrested in the Larne area on Sunday afternoon on suspicion of attempting to pervert the course of justice. She has been released pending a report to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

On Saturday, two men, 31 and 40, were released unconditionally after being arrested for questioning in relation to the UDA rampage in the Co Antrim town.

Several people, including a police officer, were injured when a mob of around 100 people attacked homes and cars in the Knockdhu Park and Ferris Avenue areas last Sunday evening.
