British Prime Minister David Cameron unveils Tuesday a landmark report into the 1972 killings of 13 civil rights protesters in Northern Ireland, raising hopes of justice for the families of victims as well as fears of renewed tensions.
Set to be published on Tuesday afternoon at 2.30pm (GMT), it is intended to paint a full, true picture of what happened over 38 years ago in Londonderry in Northern Ireland, known as Derry to Catholics.
Bloody Sunday was a landmark incident in the Troubles, the three decades of violence during which more than 3,500 people died, and which largely ended by the 1998 Good Friday Agreement.
On January 30 1972, 15,000 protesters marched through Derry calling for greater civic rights for the Catholic population of Northern Ireland.
Before reaching their destination the marchers were stopped by British Army barricades, where they threw stones at soldiers who responded by firing plastic bullets.
