Twelve men have been arrested following a dissident republican parade in Lurgan yesterday afternoon.
It took place in the Kilwilkie estate area of the county Armagh town.
Police said the men were arrested on suspicion of offences under the Public Processions Act and associated offences.
Supt David Moore said: “The arrests were as a result of the subsequent policing operation and concurrent investigation.”
It is understood the men arrested were from the Republic of Ireland and were returning to Dublin when they were arrested.
