Today marks 51st anniversary of Bloody Sunday

Today marks the 51st anniversary of Bloody Sunday, when British soldiers shot 26 unarmed civilians.

14 people died following a protest in the Bogside area of Derry, on what is regarding as one of the darkest days of the Troubles.

SDLP leader Colum Eastwood yesterday said he would nominate the families of those killed for the Nobel Peace Prize.

John Kelly – whose brother Michael was killed on Bloody Sunday – says being back at the site of the killings raises some tough memories.

“Coming back here every year brings back memories of that day, because I was there on Bloody Sunday.

“When I walk along here I’m reliving the actual length of time it took to kill our people, and see right in front of me everything that happened that day.”
