Remembering Carol Anne

With the British government coming under sustained nationalist pressure over its refusal to ban the use of plastic bullets in the North, the 20th anniversary of the killing of 12-year-old Carol Ann Kelly was marked near her Twinbrook home on Sunday 20 May.

In an emotional ceremony in which a new mural commemorating the schoolgirl was unveiled, her brother Mark made an emotional plea for the weapon to be banned.

In recent weeks, campaigners have confronted the British Secretary of State demanding that he block the introduce a newer and more deadly version of the plastic bullet, due to be deployed to Crown forces in the next week.
