Lyra McKee: friends stage protest outside offices of Saoradh

McKee, who wrote for publications including The Atlantic and Buzzfeed News, was hit by a stray bullet that was likely meant for police as riots unfolded in the city of Londonderry on Thursday night.

The group - who call themselves Saoradh - marched down O'Connell Street for a so-called "Unfinished Revolution" event.

We have received very positive support from the community but we need to convert this support into tangible evidence that will enable us to bring Lyra's killers to justice.

In a statement, he said: "I know that all right-thinking members of the public are sickened at the sight of a small number of people in paramilitary uniforms, particularly after the horrific killing of a young journalist, Lyra McKee, in Derry on Thursday night".

He said: 'Individuals continue to exert influence over communities, not just in the Creggan but in other parts of the communities as well.

Ms McKee's funeral will take place at St Anne's Cathedral in Belfast on Wednesday at 1pm.
