Omagh bomb relatives launch civil case (Northern Ireland)





Relatives of those killed in the Omagh bombing have become the first victims of terrorism to sue the people they blame for the "massacre of the innocents".

Six families who lost loved ones or suffered injury in the worst single atrocity of Northern Ireland's Troubles launched a £14 million civil case against five dissident republicans.

It came almost 10 years after a Real IRA car bomb killed 29 people, including the mother of unborn twins, devastating the market town in Co Tyrone and injuring hundreds.
