18-year-old charged with Dundalk murder back in court next week”

An 18-year-old man has been charged with murder in Dundalk.

The court heard there is an issue with determining where the accused, Mohamed Morei, is from.

On Thursday, Morei appeared in court.

Inside the court, the Judge heard the accused made no reply when he was charged with the murder of Japanese national Yosuke Sasaki.

The three attacks took place at three separate locations within 40 minutes of each other.

Police said Thursday that they have found "no established link to indicate that this tragedy is terrorist-related".

On Wednesday morning, the first of the three attacks began when Yosuke Sasaki, who had been living in Ireland for the past year, was fatally stabbed on Avenue Road shortly before 9am as he made his way to work.
