Barry McElduff suspended by Sinn Fein for three months
The MP posted an 'ill-judged' video on the anniversary of the Kingsmill massacre.
Sinn Féin has suspended West Tyrone MP Barry McElduff from all party activity for three months.
He was called to a party meeting on Monday after he was widely criticised for posting a video on social media with a Kingsmill loaf on his head on the anniversary of the 1976 Kingsmill massacre.
Sinn Féin party chairman Declan Kearney described Barry McElduff's the post as "inexcusable and indefensible".
In a statement, Mr McElduff said: "Although I genuinely meant no offence, I accept that my actions were ill-judged and, while unintended, caused deep and unnecessary hurt and pain to the Kingsmill families.
"I apologise unreservedly for this.
"In recognising the serious consequences of my actions, I fully accept the party's decision to suspend me from all party activity for a period of three months."
