Families of the victims of the Bloody Sunday shootings are fighting what they claim is an "insidious and sustained" media campaign to give the soldiers who fired on protesters in Londonderry in 1972 anonymity during the Saville Inquiry, which begins in September. Michael Mansfield QC, representing three families, says that campaigns run by the Daily Mail and The Daily Telegraph could amount to a contempt of court. George Roberston, the Defence Secretary, has announced that five former soldiers whose names had been passed to relatives of the Bloody Sunday victims, would be offered protection. The names were released after the inquiry distributed documents to the victims' families last autumn.
