Police in Northern Ireland on Saturday arrested two teenagers in connection with the fatal shooting of a journalist during rioting in the city of Londonderry.Police said the New IRA dissident group was most likely responsible and called it a "terrorist act".The killing reminded many of the decades of violence that plagued Northern Ireland before the 1998 Good Friday peace agreement.McKee rose to prominence in 2014 with a moving blog post -- "Letter to my 14 year old self" -- describing the struggle of growing up gay in Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland.The New IRA is a small group who reject the 1998 Good Friday agreement that marked the Irish Republican Army's embrace of a political solution to the long-running violence known as "The Troubles" that claimed more than 3,700 lives.
