Seventeen people, including 11 soldiers, were killed in the bomb
A County Londonderry village is set to mark the 25th anniversary of one of the worst atrocities of the Troubles.

Seventeen people, including 11 soldiers, were killed when a bomb exploded at the Droppin' Well pub in Ballykelly on 6 December 1982.

The explosion was claimed by the Irish National Liberation Army (INLA).

The pub, which was packed with 150 people, was opposite Shackleton Army Barracks, and was popular with off-duty soldiers.

Most of the victims were crushed under the heavy masonry of the pub's concrete ceiling.
