The remains of Seamus Ruddy - who was murdered by the INLA in 1985 and buried in secret in France - are due back in Ireland today.

Mr Ruddy's body was exhumed from a forest at Pont-de-l'Arche after it was discovered in May.

Frank Murray and Sir Ken Bloomfield, commissioners of The Independent Commission for the Location of Victims Remains, said Mr Ruddy's remains will be brought back to Dublin today.

Initially they will be taken to the Dublin City Mortuary and will be released to the family when the Dublin Coroner, Dr Myra Cullinane, has fulfilled her legal obligations.
