David Cameron on Bloody Sunday: 'I am deeply sorry'


Prime Minister David Cameron has said that he is "deeply sorry" for the conduct of British soldiers during Bloody Sunday.

Addressing the Commons on the publication of the Saville Report, he described the findings as "shocking" and the conduct of the Army as "unjustified and unjustifiable".

Hundreds gathered in Guildhall Square in Derry as David Cameron delivered the findings which unequivocally blamed the Army.

The report said that the Army fired the first shot of the day in one of the most controversial state killings in the Northern Ireland conflict.
