Police in Northern Ireland found guilty of collusion in 1994 killings by Protestant extremists

June 13, 2016

In Northern Ireland, an ombudsman's report has concluded that police were complicit in the 1994 killing of six Catholic men by Protestant militia.

Relatives of the victims who were gunned down in Loughinisland welcomed the June 9 report, calling it "one of the most damning expositions of state collusion in mass murder ever published." The report had found "catastrophic and indefensible failings which amount to a corruption of the criminal-justice system."
