Omagh bombing: Background

High profile republican Seamus Daly has been charged with murdering 29 people in the Real IRA bomb attack on Omagh in 1998.

The attack was the single worst atrocity during more than 30 years of violence in Northern Ireland.

Daly was one of four men ordered to pay more than £1.5m in damages to the victims' families in a civil case.

Chris Buckler reports from Omagh.
