Murder Investigation Launched Following Dublin Stabbing


A murder investigation is under way in Dublin after a man was stabbed to death in a derelict building in the city last night.

A second man, who is believed to be in his 20s was also stabbed in the building on New Wapping Street just before 11pm. He is being treated at the Mater Hospital for his injuries, which are said to be non life-threatening.

The victim, who was in his 40s, was one of five people squatting in a derelict pub when a row broke out.

Gardaí later arrested a man in his 30s after a security guard at The O2 arena noticed him covered in blood.

He is being questioned at Store Street Garda Station, where he can be held for up to 24 hours.
