British police Tuesday arrested a former soldier for the Bloody Sunday killings in Londonderry in 1972, part of a probe aimed at healing the wounds of Northern Ireland's three decades of unrest.It was the first arrest since a murder investigation was opened in 2012 into the killings of 13 Catholic civil rights protesters in the streets that day, one of the worst incidents in the province's long sectarian conflict.Bloody Sunday helped bolster support for the IRA during 30 years of sectarian bloodshed in Northern Ireland, a period known as The Troubles, in which around 3,500 people died.Families of the victims had long campaigned for a review, and in 2010 a 12-year inquiry by London concluded that none of the victims posed a threat and that the soldiers gave no warning before firing.
