Gardaí tonight arrested a man in his 40s in Cork in connection with the discovery of a number of assault rifle rounds.

The arrest was made as part of a massive Garda operation against money laundering in the week of the raid of the Northern Bank in Belfast.

Officers made the arrest in the town of Passage West following a tip-off that a man was burning sterling bank notes in his backyard.

The man was taken from his home to Gurranberhaer Garda Station in the north side of Cork city.

A Garda spokesman said he was being detained under Section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act.
