Omagh bomb accused freed on bail

The only man brought to trial over the 1998 Omagh bombing has been freed on bail after winning an appeal against his conviction.

Colm Murphy, 51, from Dundalk, County Louth, was jailed for 14 years in 2002 for conspiracy to cause an explosion.

However, the Court of Criminal Appeal in Dublin set aside the conviction last week and ordered a retrial.

On Friday, the court said it had no objections to freeing him. The husband of a victim argued against it.
