Omagh Bomber Murphy walks free - shock!!

Well the courts seem to think he's an inocent man... aye right!

Twenty nine people, including a woman pregnant with twins, died in the attack on 15 August 1998.

In 1984 Mr Murphy spent a year in jail in the United States for trying to buy missiles, rifles and submachine guns.

Omagh campaigner Michael Gallagher, whose 21-year-old son Aiden was murdered in the bombing, said the development came as a blow to bereaved families.

"It has been the history of this process that the families have been disappointed time and time again, but when it happens it is still hard," he said.

"But I think this is the first time in years I feel angry."

"This is a crime that the Taoiseach, the Prime Minister and the President of the United States took an interest in.

"If this can't be solved what hope is there for other crimes?"
