SRR Help Track Omagh Bomb Suspect


The Special Reconnaissance Regiment (SRR) helped track the suspect arrested for the recent murder of a policeman in Northern Ireland. Scotlnd's Daily Record reports that the unit tracked the 26-year old man's movements until he was arrested by Scottish police in Renton, West Dunbartonshire, 4 days after PC Kerr, 25, was killed by a car bomb in Omagh.


Background: The Special Reconnaissance Regiment grew out of 14 Intelligence Company, an SAS-trained surveillance unit that operated in Northern Ireland during the Troubles. The SRR was created in 2005 and has has operated in both Iraq and Afghanistan. In 2009, a rise in dissident activity in Northern Ireland saw the SRR deploy return to operating within the UK.
