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".
