Locals marched through Derry, Northern Ireland, to commemorate the 47th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, when British troops shot and killed 14 peaceful protesters at a civil rights march in the Bogside area of the city.

Families of the victims led the march, silently holding white crosses, while bands played along the parade.

Thirteen people were killed on January 30, 1972 after British soldiers from the 1st Battalion, Parachute Regiment, opened fire on a peaceful anti-internment protest in the Bogside area of Derry. A fourteenth person died four months later as a result of the injuries he had sustained.
