10 people killed by British troops in 1971 “Ballymurphy massacre” were “completely innocent” – BBC News




Fifty years after their deaths, a lawmaker has ruled that 10 people killed in Belfast in 1971 – in the operation by British soldiers in the Parachute Regiment – were “completely innocent”. A Catholic priest and the mother of eight children were helping the wounded among the dead. An operation to arrest suspected paramilitaries without trial by the British army resulted in three days of violence in the Ballymurphy area of ​​Belfast. The soldiers said they thought the gunmen had been set on fire. The families of the dead eventually won a long battle to clear the names of their relatives, as the legislature criticized the army for using excessive force and for the killings being “unjustified”.
