Bloody Sunday report delayed for at least another year

The chairman of the Saville Inquiry has revealed that his report into the events of Bloody Sunday in 1972 will not be completed for at least another year.

The inquiry's final report was expected to be completed by the end of this year and published in early 2009.

The tribunal has spent several years and at least £180m investigating the fatal shooting of 13 civilians by British soldiers during a civil rights march in Derry in January 1972.

John Kelly, whose brother Michael was shot dead on Bloody Sunday, says the latest delay is causing added frustration and anger among the victim's families.
