Derry remembers Bloody Sunday murders 47 years on [Photos] 

Thousands took part in the annual Bloody Sunday commemoration in Derry to mark 47 years since the murders. Thirteen innocent people died after members of the Parachute Regiment opened fire on civil rights demonstrators on January 30, 1972. A 14th victim died later. The landmark Saville Inquiry concluded in 2010 that all those killed or injured were innocent. Prime Minister David Cameron issued an official apology in the House of Commons, describing the killings as "unjustified and unjustifiable".

The streets of Belfast were closed off on Sunday morning for a mass cycling event Ciclovia. The free event is a health and community based initiative which closes a part of the city to allow cyclists the opportunity to ride through the traffic free zone. It is also an opportunity to create a mini festival environment which will attract and encourage people to come into the city centre, on their bikes, and enjoy the freedom of the closed streets and the sense of community.
