The PSNI said the 67-year-old was arrested on suspicion of murder following his extradition.

It relates to the murder of two Ulster Defence Regiment (UDR) soldiers in 1972, and on suspicion of aiding and abetting an explosion.

Lance Corporal Alfred Johnston and Private James Eames died when a device exploded in a car they were checking in Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh.

The PSNI says the investigation "remains active".

The 67-year-old man is expected to appear at Omagh Magistrates Court on Saturday morning.
