Two men have been charged with money laundering offences as part of a major investigation believed to be linked to a Chinese organised crime gang. 

The pair were among 11 people detained in Belfast yesterday, following 6 property searches across the city.

Police say in total, almost 16 million pounds has been deposited to thousands of bank accounts across the UK from the accounts since January last year.

The two suspects will appear before Belfast Magistrates' Court this morning. 

Meanwhile, nine others remain in custody.
