A 33 year old unemployed Armagh man accused of raping an 18 year old girl in the city at the weekend was freed on bail by a court yesterday. The offence is alleged to have been committed early on Saturday.

At a lunch time special court, the Resident Magistrate, Mr Paul Copeland, prohibited publication of the man's name and address or any details in the case which could lead to the identification of the alleged victim.
