Anthony Condron murder: Liverpool police question three after man killed in unprovoked city centre bar attack

Three men have been arrested on suspicion of murder after a man was killed in an unprovoked attack at a bar in Liverpool's city centre.

Anthony Condron, 29, died in hospital after an altercation in the Maya Bar in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Merseyside Police said the men, a 22-year-old from Liverpool, a 24-year-old from Aigburth and a 23-year-old from Mossley Hill, are being questioned by detectives and appealed for revellers at the bar to come forward.

Investigators are particularly interested in speaking to a group of girls who are thought to have been in the bar area when the attack took place, the force said.
