Mr Cameron said:
* No warning had been given to any civilians before the soldiers opened fire
* None of the soldiers fired in response to attacks by petrol bombers or stone throwers
* Some of those killed or injured were clearly fleeing or going to help those injured or dying
* None of the casualties was posing a threat or doing anything that would justify their shooting
* There was no point in trying to soften or equivocate - the events of Bloody Sunday were not justified
* Many of the soldiers lied about their actions
* What happened should never, ever have happened
* Some members of the British armed forces acted wrongly
* On behalf of the government and the country, he said he was "deeply sorry"
* The events of Bloody Sunday were not premeditated
* Northern Ireland's Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness, Sinn Fein, was present at the time of the violence and "probably armed with a
submachine gun" but did not engage in "any activity that provided any of the soldiers with any justification for opening fire
these are teh key findings.
