Brighton bomber 'sorry' for killing 25 years on

Breaking News

Brighton bomber Patrick Magee remained defiant over his former IRA membership as he visited the House of Commons for the first time.

But the former terrorist told Jo Berry, the daughter of MP Sir Anthony Berry, who was killed in the bombing of the Grand Hotel in 1984, he was sorry for having killed her father.

Magee also said he regretted the loss of life and injuries caused by the Brighton bomb and declared recent sectarian violence in Northern Ireland was not justified because a political dialogue had been opened.

Magee was speaking at a meeting organised by the All Party Parliamentary Group on Conflict Issues and reconciliation scheme The Forgiveness Project. The meeting came a day after the 25th anniversary of the bombing of the Conservative Party conference.
