Campaigners believe these photographs shatter claims that a teenager gunned down on Bloody Sunday was carrying four bulky nail bombs when shot.
One of the photos - taken yesterday by a ‘Journal’ photographer - shows tight-fitting clothing, similar to that worn by Gerald Donaghey (17) on the day he was killed, with nail bombs, resembling those he was alleged to have been carrying when shot, jammed into the pockets.
Both the teenager’s family and campaigners aiming to clear his name believe the bulky items - comprising, in all, 171 four inch nails and weighing almost five pounds - were simply far too obvious not to have been seen by a number of witnesses prior to their “discovery” at a British Army post.
They remain convinced the bombs were “planted” on him by the security forces after he died.
They spoke out after Lord Saville - the judge who chaired the Bloody Sunday Inquiry - stood by the tribunal’s conclusion that the Bogside teen was “probably” carrying the nail bombs when shot close to Abbey Park.
