The survivors of a shooting by soldiers in West Belfast 25 years ago have demanded an independent inquiry into the killings. Five people, including a Catholic priest, died in the so-called Springhill massacre in July 1972. Eyewitnesses today claimed that soldiers opened fire on the residents following the breakdown of the 1972 IRA ceasefire. The Sinn Féin president Gerry Adams claimed the massacre had been forgotten and said anyone interested in human rights should support the demand for an inquiry.
