Gary Convie, 24, and Eamon Fox, 44, were sitting in their car at a building site in North Queen Street on 17 May 1994 when a gunman opened fire with a sub-machine gun.

In north Belfast on Monday morning the suspect was detained on suspicion of the two murders, the attempted murder of a third man and membership of the UVF.

He has been taken to the Serious Crime Suite at Antrim police station for questioning.

A man has previously been convicted in connection with the murders.

No, Alan, you and others introduced whataboutery ironically. Ryan made a sardonic comment concerning the faux mantra of a vicious group of murdering psychos and you and others chose to rebut his comment by effectively trying to justify said faux mantra. Again I would ask what has Kingsmill, Omagh, Enniskillen, et al got to do with the murder of two innocent workmen by the scum of society? If you want to avoid the whataboutery why even bring the "themuns did worse" into it? Why go on the defensive for a criminal organisation that someone chose to ridicule?

Ulysees can you please wise up, so by me saying all murder is wrong and asking someone else to stop the whataboutery as you say, suddenly im a uvf supporter, you're dillusional, seems to be that through your eyes if you're not a supporter of all things republican then you are a uvf man...... Grow up

as some who grew up in east belfast , with so call uda and uvf being some kind of defenders / reality for me is that northern irish people are killing each other with the cloak of criminality or religion and politics all mixed in. any society that spend its time blaming each other,continuing with the same madness is doomed i am proud ulsterman , happy to be born in ireland .,we all have records of violence in us, we all share a broken history. but we also have the ability to learn new ways, i hopeand pray that we can have new day as one man said i have dream, etc

And the loyalist death squad supporters like Sam and Paul arrive with their whataboutery rather than congratulating the PSNI for doing their job. Is there anything you two would disagree with in what Ryan said. I didn't notice praise for any murderous organisation in his comment that you could take issue with. And Alan, is he having a dig at the otherside? Are all the otherside fierce UVF fans? Are you trying to defend a loyalist terror organisation which was mentioned in the above article because someone posted a comment which omitted insulting another terror organisation that has no relevance to this particular article?
