Bloody Sunday book author Ian Hernon “wanted to write for all sides”

The author of an upcoming book marking the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday said lessons can still be learned.

Former journalist Ian Hernon, from England, said the ongoing debate over legacy issues has highlighted the dilemma of dealing with the past.

Thirteen innocent people were shot dead by members of the controversial Bogside Parachute Regiment during a civil rights march in January 1972. A fourteenth later died of his injuries.
