IN PICTURES: INNOCENT! Emotional scenes as the Saville Report into Bloody Sunday killings published in 2010

It is now almost 14 years since tens of thousands of people gathered in Guildhall Square in solidarity with the Bloody Sunday families as the Saville Report into the killings was published on June 15, 2010.

Anyone who was there that day will remember the palpable sense of expectation and then the collective euphoria when the families and the city who stood with them were officially vindicated in their long campaign for the truth. Derry always knew. Now the world did too.

To mark the anniversary, The Bloody Sunday Trust and Pat Finucane Centre will hist a public meeting with international and human rights barrister Blinne Ní Ghrálaigh KC.

Ms Ní Ghrálaigh gained international renown for delivering two damning presentations in the International Court of Justice in January and May 2024 as part of South Africa’s case of genocide against Israel before the Court.

13 people were shot dead by the British Army in the Bogside during an anti-internment march in Derry on January 30, 1972. A 14th person died later from injuries sustained that day.
