The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has issued an apology in the House of Commons to the families of the Ballymurphy massacre.
A recent inquest found 10 people shot dead during the British operation in 1971 were 'entirely innocent'.
Boris Johnson had previously been criticised by the victims' families for not addressing the matter in parliament.
In the House of Commons this afternoon, Mr Johnson issued a public apology to the families.
He said: "On behalf of successive Governments, and to put this on the record in this House, I would like to say sorry to their families for how the investigations were handled and for the pain they have endured since their campaign began almost five decades ago.
"No apology can lessen their lasting pain. I hope they may take some comfort in the answers they have secured and in knowing that this has renewed the Government’s determination to ensure in future that other families can find answers with less distress and delay."
He also read out the name of all ten victims: Francis Quinn, Father Hugh Mullan, Noel Phillips, Joan Connolly, Daniel Teggart, Joseph Murphy, Edward Doherty, John Laverty, Joseph Corr and John McKerr.
