Families of those killed on Bloody Sunday continue struggle for justice

Families of those killed on Bloody Sunday have vowed they will continue to battle for justice ahead of the 50th anniversary of one of the darkest days in Northern Ireland's history. However, relatives of several of those who died in Londonderry half a century ago have conceded that their chances of securing convictions get "slimmer and slimmer" with each passing year. About 15,000 people gathered in the Creggan area of the city on the morning of January 30 1972 to take part in a civil rights march, which was banned by the Stormont government of the time. After Army barricades blocked the march, there was rioting before soldiers from the Parachute Regiment opened fire.
