Minutes Before the Omagh Bombing

In 1998, Omagh bombing was a terrorist attack in Omagh, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, carried out by the Real Irish Republican Army. The bombs killed 29 people and injured more than 220 people. This photo was recovered from a camera found in the debris following the blast, the red car that can be seen in the background – a red Vauxhall Cavalier – was carrying the bomb that killed the innocent victims.

One survivor Jolene Jamison recalled, “I was in the kitchen, and heard a big bang. Everything fell on me – the cupboards blew off the wall. The next thing I got blasted out into the street. There was smashed glass everywhere – bodies, children. People were inside-out.” Both the child and the gentleman in the picture, who were Spanish tourists, miraculously survived the incident. The photographer, who was with the same group of Spanish tourists, was killed.
