NI cross-party talks to start following Lyra McKee killing

“We must act now” – the words of the Northern Ireland Secretary Karen Bradley. More than two years since Northern Ireland had a functioning assembly, a new round of talks on power sharing will now take place starting next month, involving all its main political parties – not just the DUP and Sinn Fein.

Ireland’s Foreign Minister warned that failure to reach a deal would leave a “wide open space” for dissidents to exploit.
