A photojournalist's assistant who was in Derry on the day of Bloody Sunday said soldiers shot twice at her employer as he tried to take photographs of the scene.

Susan North said that Fulvio Grimaldi, whose pictures include the scenes of now-retired Bishop of Derry Dr Edward Daly tending to the dying Jack Duddy and the dead Barney McGuigan, was deliberately targeted by paratroopers.
