An Irish man who offered an undercover hitman €10,000 (£8,600) to kill an accountant has been arrested and detained for questioning.
The unnamed man is reportedly connected to a high-profile political Irish family and wanted a revenue official, fraud squad detective and accountant dead.
He was arrested by Irish police in Cork after he approached someone to enquire about hitmen.
The man then reportedly met with a police officer disguised as a hitman and he was arrested and questioned for conspiring to murder.
