A murder suspect was arrested by gardaí during an operation targeting foreign national criminals across the Republic.

Operation Trivium, which is running across the EU, is targeting criminals who have emigrated to other European countries on the run or to continue their involvement in organised crime.

Last night gardaí said they had arrested 12 suspects and seized 26 vehicles.

Among those arrested was a 29-year-old Lithuanian man who was detained under a European arrest warrant issued because he is wanted in his home country in connection with a murder there.

Gardaí also detained three foreign nationals for drink-driving, six for driving while disqualified and two for drug and offensive weapon related crimes.
