‘Lyra McKee: 29-year-old journalist shot dead in Derry – video obituary’:-

‘Lyra McKee was fatally wounded during rioting in Derry on Thursday night, becoming what is believed to be the first journalist killed in the UK since Martin O’Hagan was shot in Lurgan, County Armagh, in 2001. The 29-year-old was an acclaimed Northern Irish journalist, who wrote about the Troubles and campaigned for LGBT rights.’

I really hope that we’re not regressing back to the bad old days of The Troubles - yet unfortunately it does seem to be escalating to a point where we’ll be there soon enough.

Edit: Lyra McKee killing: ‘New IRA’ admits responsibility - from the BBC.

RIP Lyra McKee.
