Latest: Bloody Sunday Whitewash — Just one soldier charged with killings

THE British state has been accused of a whitewash as just one soldier faces charges for the “unjustified” Bloody Sunday killings of 14 unarmed civilians, seven of whom were children in Derry, 1972.

Families are in shock at the decision to only prosecute “Soldier F” for the murder of James Wray and William McKinney and the attempted murders of Joseph Friel, Michael Quinn, Joe Mahon and Patrick O'Donnell.

Northern Ireland's Public Prosecutions Service ruled this morning that there is insufficient evidence for a reasonable prospect of conviction for the remaining 16 soldiers.

The fight for justice continues.
