Letter to the editor

With regard to the article that appeared in the print edition on Thursday May 6, ‘Hunger Strike terror victim angry’.

It was disappointing to note that this article incorrectly identified the officer murdered with A/Con Alfie Woods as Con John Stewart when he was actually Con John Smyth.

I was pleased to see it corrected in the online edition.
