An RTÉ screening of a documentary investigating allegations of British government involvement in the murder of more than 120 civilians in counties Armagh and Tyrone has been postponed due to "minor broadcast issues."

Director Sean Murray's film 'Unquiet Graves: The Story of the Glenanne Gang' was due to be shown on RTÉ 1 this evening at 9.30pm.

However, Mr Murray posted on Twitter that tonight's showing has been postponed.

Mr Murray said the showing of the film is a "major milestone on the road to justice".

The Belfast premiere was in February at Movie House cinema on the city's Dublin Road.

The feature-length documentary is narrated by the Oscar-nominated actor Stephen Rea.

Among the allegations is a claim by a former RUC officer that British intelligence tried to persuade the UVF to attack a Catholic primary school in Co Armagh in retaliation for the Kingsmill massacre.
