Bloody Sunday victims remembered on 40th anniversary - VIDEO
Families gather in memory of victims four dacades after Derry atrocity
Several events were held in Derry yesterday to mark the 40th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, in which 14 civil rights marchers were killed by British paratroopers.
Relatives and friends of the victims attended a memorial service at a monument in Derry's Bogside on Monday, in which both Catholic and Protestant clergy were involved.
The majority of families refused to partake in a march which re-traced the route of the January 30th, 1972 demonstration.
Kate and Linda Nash who lost their teenage brother William, took part in the march.

"I am delighted with the turnout," she told the Associated Press.
"But even if it had just been myself and my sister, we would still have a right to march. That is democracy.
“We are going to continue to march for prosecutions, but beyond that, this is a unique march and it should continue for all those who are seeking justice."
In 2010, a public inquiry by Lord Saville declared all the victims innocent and prompted a formal apology by British Prime Minister David Cameron.
