The Irish government plans to publish evidence which is said to justify a new investigation into Bloody Sunday. The announcement last night by the Irish Prime Minister, Bertie Ahern, stepped up pressure on Tony Blair to take fresh action over the killing of 14 civilians by the British Army in Derry 25 years ago.

Mr Ahern pledged to publish new facts submitted to London earlier this year by the previous Dublin government. "We have given the British Government a great deal of time ... to consider this matter ... whatever the decision, it would be my intention to publish that report in the early months of next year."
