Body removed in Disappeared search


The organisation responsible for finding the remains of the "Disappeared" of the Northern Ireland troubles have exhumed a body in the Republic of Ireland.

The remains were taken from a church graveyard near Scotstown, County Monaghan.

Previous digs in the search for Columba McVeigh have taken place nearby.

Mr McVeigh, 17, from Donaghmore, County Tyrone, was abducted and murdered by the IRA in 1975.
