Govt pledges support to find McCartney's killers

Minister for Foreign Affairs Dermot Ahern has promised the Government will do all it can to help apprehend and prosecute the killers of Belfast man Robert McCartney.

The 33-year-old was beaten and stabbed to death outside a pub in the city on January 30, allegedly by senior IRA members.

His family have accepted that the killing was not an IRA operation, but have accused those responsible of using their IRA links to intimidate witnesses and hide evidence.

Speaking after talks with the family in Dublin today, Mr Ahern called on anyone who witnessed the killing to provide information to the PSNI, claiming it was their patriotic duty.
