The Government will not launch a public inquiry into the events surrounding the Omagh bombing in 1998, it was announced today.
"After consultation and careful consideration, I have decided not to instigate a public inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the bombing in Omagh on 15 August 1998," Secretary of State for Northern Ireland Theresa Villiers said.
"The current investigation by the Office of the Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland is the best way to address any outstanding issues relating to the police investigation of the Omagh attack."
The car bomb was an attempt to disrupt the peace process, killing 29 and injuring more than 200.
No criminal convictions have been made in connection with the attack.
