Six men have been arrested following a dissident republican commemoration in Londonderry.

Several hundred people attended a rally at a cemetery. Police said they kept a distance from the event, but a security force helicopter monitored the scene.

The arrested men were taken to Antrim police station for questioning.

Easter Monday sees republicans honour the Easter Rising of 1916, when rebels seized control of parts of Dublin and proclaimed Ireland a republic.
