Bloody Sunday, sometimes called the Bogside Massacre, was an incident on 30 January 1972 in Derry, Northern Ireland, in which 26 unarmed civil-rights protesters and bystanders were shot by soldiers of the British Army. Thirteen males, seven of whom were teenagers, died immediately or soon after, while the death of another man four-and-a-half months later was attributed to the injuries he received on that day. Many were shot in the back as they were attempting to flee or shot as they hid behind cars.
