Claudy report expected to show priest's involvement

It was one of Northern Ireland's worst atrocities -- a bombing which left nine people dead and thirty injured during some of the darkest days of the violence between Catholics and Protestants.

More details will be published later on Tuesday of the 1972 bombing in the village of Claudy. The suggestion is that the attack was masterminded by a Catholic priest but he was not arrested after a deal was done between the British government and the Catholic Church.

Ireland correspondent Mark Simpson reports.
