Two Irish men have been charged with murdering a 66-year-old man in Australia.

The pair, who are from Co Donegal, had previously been charged with assaulting the man in Sydney last month.

The men were charged with grievous bodily harm and affray after a man was found with critical injuries on the side of the road in Summer Hill in Sydney.

The charges were upgraded to murder after the man died in hospital yesterday morning.

The men remain in custody and are due to appear at Burwood Local Court tomorrow.

They're both understood to be from the Inishowen Peninsula.

Both men arrived in Australia a few months ago.

The victim, who has not yet been named, was found lying on the side of the road shortly after midnight on 29 December.

Emergency services were called and he was treated at the scene before being brought to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital where he died yesterday.
