Two suspected firearms and quantity of ammunition recovered in Co Tyrone
Detectives from the PSNI's Terrorism Investigation Unit have recovered two suspected firearms and a quantity of ammunition in Co Tyrone.
The items were recovered during a planned search in the Seskinore Road area of Omagh on Tuesday as part of an ongoing investigation into dissident republicans.
A PSNI spokesman said: "The weapons were recovered from a constructed hide which had been secreted in the ground.
"The items have been taken away for further forensic examination.
"A main line of enquiry is that the weapons may be linked to the New IRA".
He added: "Our aim will always be to protect communities and keep people safe from harm, and today's search demonstrates that we will continue to work with our communities to disrupt the activities of this small group of people who are intent on using violence.”
"There is no place for this type of activity and the vast majority of people in our communities want to live in a peaceful society".
