Ballymurphy families welcome inquests


The attorney general has ordered 10 new inquests into the deaths of the people shot dead by paratroopers in Ballymurphy in 1971.

The victims' families said the decision by John Larkin was an important step in their ongoing campaign for justice.

The Army said it opened fire in response to gunfire from republican paramilitaries.

The families have carried out a long-running campaign for an independent inquiry into the killings.
