    The leaders of Britain and Ireland have joined hundreds of mourners at the funeral of journalist Lyra (leerer) McKee, who was killed by an Irish nationalist militant during a riot

    The leaders of Britain and Ireland have joined hundreds of mourners at the funeral of journalist Lyra (leerer) McKee, who was killed by an Irish nationalist militant during a riot


    Leaders from across Northern Ireland's political divide sat side by side at the service in Belfast.

    McKee was remembered as a "talented and fearless young woman" who broke down barriers.

    Catholic priest Father Martin Magill received a standing ovation for his powerful address, where he praised the different sides for coming together.

    But he questioned why it had taken the death of a 29-year-old woman, with her whole life in front of her, for that to happen.

    The New IRA has admitted one of its members shot McKee, and has apologised.
