Anniversary of Claudy massacre marked

At the weekend a short commemorative event was held at the Claudy bomb memorial site in the village, where on 31 st July 1972 the Provisional IRA carried out a bomb attack which resulted in nine innocent people being murdered and over a hundred injured. No one has been made amenable for the atrocity in the forty nine years since.

Representatives of families attended as did the Mayor of Londonderry & Strabane Graham Warke, the local representatives Gregory Campbell MP and Gary Middleton MLA. Speaking after the event Gregory Campbell said "Any amnesty being introduced by the UK Government would mean that even if evidence were to emerge against those responsible for this, one of the worst atrocities of the troubles, no one would ever face a court of law for their crimes against innocent adults and children. This is yet another reason why Secretary of State Brandon Lewis needs to think again."
