Northern Ireland's attorney general John Larkin has said there should be an end to prosecutions for Troubles-related killings.

He said his proposal was not a formal amnesty, but was a logical consequence of the Agreement.

More than 3,500 people were killed during three decades of sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland.

Chris Buckler reports.
