'Bloody Sunday' Investigators Arrest Ex-Soldier in Northern Ireland

Detectives investigating the deadly "Bloody Sunday" shootings in Northern Ireland have arrested a former British soldier, authorities said Tuesday.

British troops shot dead 13 unarmed Catholics protesters during a January 30, 1972 march in Londonderry, Northern Ireland. Another later died from his wounds. The day came to be known as "Bloody Sunday" and one of the most violent incidents in four decades of sectarian conflict.
