Cameron apologises for Bloody Sunday, admits shootings were unjustified

By Andy Rice 15 June 2010

The British government has, via prime minister David Cameron, apologised for the 1972 shooting of demonstrators in Northern Ireland, calling the action "both unjustified and unjustifiable. It was wrong." It is the first apology the relatives of the dead have received from the government in almost 40 years, much of which was spent justifying the killings instead.
