On the Irish border, there are growing fears that Brexit could lead to a rise in crime. A hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland, and the introduction of border controls, could also lead separatists to return to violence.
Police said they had arrested the 57-year-old woman under the Terrorism Act. The arrest came hours after the New IRA admitted responsibility for the killing journalist Lyra McKee.
21 years after the Good Friday agreement, journalist Lyra McKee's death in a riot has brought Londonderry's tortured past back to the fore as Brexit woes threaten to unravel a fragile border peace.
A journalist has been killed in Derry/Londonderry during violent demonstrations in an Irish nationalist part of the city. Police are treating the murder as a "terrorist incident."
UK and Irish leaders were among hundreds of people who came out to honor the life of Lyra McKee at a funeral in Belfast. The journalist was shot dead during rioting in Northern Ireland last week.
