A legal representative for the family of a Londonderry mother-of-six shot dead in her own back garden 50 years ago has said the question of "planning and control" of the soldiers was central to the inquest.

The hearing concerns the death of Kathleen Thompson, who died during an Army operation in Derry in November 1971.

Counsel for the family, Karen Quinlivan QC, was questioning a former soldier, KTM72, who had told of firing three shots after seeing muzzle flashes.
