The US jet used to abduct and transport al-Qaeda suspects has landed in Shannon airport three times this year, The Sunday Business Post has learned.

This contradicts earlier claims by the Minister for Transport that it had not landed in Ireland since early 2003.

Martin Cullen told the Dail last month that the jet, call sign N379P, had landed in Ireland 13 times since 2001, but had not landed here since early last year.
