Four men have appeared in court in Mauritius in connection with the murder of Michaela McAreavey last week.

The 27-year-old, daughter of Tyrone Gaelic football manager Mickey Harte, was found strangled in her honeymoon hotel room in Grand Gaube.

Two men, already charged with murder and another charged with conspiracy to murder, appeared in court again on Wednesday.

A fourth man was later charged with aiding to commit a crime.

He is Dassen Narayanen, 26, who works for hotel security.

All four men were remanded in custody until next Wednesday.

The three men who had previously appeared in court were Sandip Moneea, 41, Avinash Treebhoowoon, 29, who are charged with murder and 33-year-old Raj Theekoy, who is charged with conspiracy to murder.

Mr Treebhoowoon has confessed to the killing.

Mrs McAreavey's funeral was held near her County Tyrone family home on Monday in the same church where she married her husband John on 30 December.
