NI Secretary Theresa Villiers withdraws Troubles' documents case

Northern Ireland Secretary Theresa Villiers has withdrawn legal action over the release of documents about three murders more than 40 years ago.

The case was taken after Culture Minister Carál Ní Chuilín gave inquest files to a victims' group and law firm.

The High Court heard on Friday, that after an examination of the papers, the injunction was no longer necessary.
