Relatives of Omagh bombing victims hold ceremony

Relatives of the victims of the Omagh bombing are gathering in Co Tyrone today for a ceremony to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the atrocity.

On the 15th of August 1998, 29 people and two unborn twin girls were killed when a car bomb ripped through Market Street.

An official ceremony was held on Friday; however the families of some of the victims boycotted it because they say the memorial does not prominently blame dissident republicans.
