A man arrested in connection with the murder of Kevin McAlorum in south Belfast over fifteen years ago has been released.

The 55-year-old was detained yesterday under the Terrorism Act and questioned at Musgrave Police Station. 

Mr McAlorum, who was 31 at the time, was shot dead in the street outside Oakwood Primary School Derriaghy on 3rd June 2004 after leaving a child off at the school.

The PSNI says the murder remains under investigation. 

A court heard earlier this week that a suspect was to be questioned over the INLA man's death. 

The preliminary hearing was linked to a string of legacy inquests.

A coroner is trying to decide which cases should be held first in an effort to clear a major backlog of files linked to the troubles in Northern Ireland including that of Mr.McAlorum.
