New documentary claims Ballymurphy victims were innocent


Next week an inquest takes place in Belfast 47 years after what’s become known as the Ballymurphy Massacre.

Eleven people died after troops opened fire on Catholic residents in West Belfast in August 1971.

The British Military has always maintained that the paratroopers were fired on first by IRA gunmen but a new film out this week, ‘The Ballymurphy Precedent’, suggests otherwise.

The film is out in cinemas on Thursday.
