Bloody Sunday, U2 was right

BBC News - Key findings: "The Saville Report into the events of Bloody Sunday in Londonderry on 30 January 1972 has been published. The inquiry set out to answer a number of key questions:

Were those killed and injured all unarmed and innocent civilians?
'None of the casualties shot by soldiers of Support Company was armed with a firearm or (with the probable exception of Gerald Donaghey) a bomb of any description. None was posing any threat of causing death or serious injury. In no case was any warning given before soldiers opened fire.

'None of the casualties was posing a threat of causing death or serious injury, or indeed was doing anything else that could on any view justify their shooting.'"
