Omagh relatives welcome verdict


Relatives of people killed in the Omagh bombing have won a civil action against four men accused of carrying out the attack in 1998.

The leader of the Real IRA, Michael McKevitt, and three other men - Liam Campbell, Colm Murphy and Seamus Daly - were found liable for the bombing by a judge at Belfast Crown Court. A fifth man, Seamus McKenna, was cleared.

A spokesman for the relatives of the Omagh bombing victims, Michael Gallagher, gave his reaction outside court.
