Two men, both in their late 20s, were discovered with stab wounds on the road in the Rathsallagh Park area of Shankill at about 5.30am on Thursday.

They were taken by ambulance to St Vincent's Hospital where one was pronounced dead shortly after 8am. The second man remains in a serious condition.

Police in the Republic of Ireland later detained a man in his early 30s in the Dublin area as part of their investigations. He is being questioned at Shankill Garda Station.

A spokesperson said: "The scene has been preserved for a technical examination.

"Gardai wish to appeal for witnesses that may have been in or around Rathsallagh Park this morning or who can assist with the investigation to contact Shankill Garda Station on 01-6665900, The Garda Confidential Telephone Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station."
