A group calling itself "the IRA" has claimed it murdered the Northern Ireland prison officer David Black.

He was shot as he drove to work on the M1 in County Armagh on 1 November.

The new terrorist group is believed to have been formed from an amalgamation of previously disparate dissident republican organisations.
