A 42-year-old woman was last night being questioned by police investigating dissident republican group Óglaigh na hÉireann.

Detectives from the PSNI's Terrorism Investigation Unit made the arrest in west Belfast yesterday morning.

A search of a property was also carried out and a number of items were seized and removed for further examination.

The woman remained in police custody last night.
