A journalist has been shot dead during rioting in Londonderry that police are treating as a "terrorist incident".

Axar.az reports citing foreign media.

Dissident republicans are being blamed for killing 29-year-old Lyra McKee during rioting after police searches in Derry's Creggan area on Thursday night.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said the New IRA "are likely to be the ones behind this" and detectives have started a murder inquiry.

Prime Minister Theresa May said the murder was "shocking and senseless".

Ms McKee was a journalist who "died doing her job with great courage", added Mrs May.

The PSNI said that a gunman fired shots towards police officers at about 23:00 BST on Thursday.

Mobile phone footage taken by a bystander during Thursday night's rioting appears to show a masked gunman crouching down on the street and opening fire with a handgun.

Ms McKee, who was standing near a police 4x4 vehicle, was wounded.
