Johnson's words of contrition came in a Downing Street statement issued after he spoke by videoconference Wednesday to the joint leaders of Northern Ireland's power-sharing government, Democratic Unionist Party leader Arlene Foster and Sinn Féin vice president Michelle O'Neill. "The way he should have done it, contact the families and make the apology in public, in the houses of Parliament".
"Will this Prime Minister now finally apologise for what those British Forces did by murdering 10 entirely innocent people or will they continue to pursue an amnesty for their killers?"
The No 10 statement added: "The prime minister restated the government's intention to deliver a way forward in Northern Ireland that focuses on reconciliation, delivers for victims of the Troubles and ends the cycle of reinvestigations".
"His apology means nothing", said Briege Voyle, whose mother died from a high-velocity shot to the head.
She said it would have been "at least been a bit more respectful" if the British Prime Minister had made his apology in the House of Commons.

"Where he comes out and addresses the families, reflects on what has happened; reads the full report and understands the impact this has had on these families and on the communities in which they lived".
