That this House mourns the death of Lyra McKee, murdered on Thursday 18 April 2019 by dissident republican terrorists in the course of her work reporting as an investigative journalist; recognises the profound shock and sympathy that greeted this news right across the community; notes that the killing is a devastating blow to Lyra's partner and family, to her many friends and colleagues throughout the National Union of Journalists; commends the bravery of journalists across the world in risking their own safety to serve the public with their reports; notes that last year 95 journalists and media professionals lost their lives in targeted killings, bomb attacks or crossfire incidents worldwide; and calls for those responsible for murdering Lyra to be brought to justice, and reasserts the vital importance of preserving peace in Northern Ireland.
