Kingsmills families in legal threat to see files

By Staff Reporter

Families of the Kingsmills Massacre victims are considering legal action against the Irish Government for failing to hand over files on the IRA atrocity.

Yesterday was the 41st anniversary of the attack, and relatives held a service at the south Armagh scene where 10 Protestant workmen were shot dead.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny had promised to disclose information about the 1976 attack.

But Colin Worton, whose brother Kenneth died in the attack, said: "Nearly two years later, they haven't. To make things worse, the police investigation doesn't seem to have the vigour it did, either. We have no confidence with the police at all."
