Relatives of Omagh bomb victims said today that they are launching legal action in a bid to force the British and Irish governments into granting a full-scale cross-border inquiry into the outrage.
A car bomb attack by the Real IRA on August 15 1998 killed 29 people in Omagh and relatives are now planning High Court applications in Belfast and Dublin seeking leave to apply for a judicial review.
The announcement followed a meeting today with Northern Ireland Secretary Theresa Villiers.
Outside Hillsborough Castle, Co Down, Michael Gallagher - whose son Aiden was killed in the attack - said: "We're tired of waiting for a decision. We could go on like this for the next 10, 20 years. We've been left with no choice but to go down the legal route."
Talks have been arranged with legal representatives tomorrow in advance of the applications being lodged.
