Patricia Gearon (L), 64, and her sister Helen McKinley, 65, walk to the site where their brother Peter Wilson's remains were discovered in 2010 at Waterfoot beach in County Antrim November 5, 2014. Peter Wilson was last seen in Falls Park in August 1973 aged 21. His body was found in November 2010 at Waterfoot beach in County Antrim. He is one of a group of people kidnapped, murdered and buried in remote locations by Paramilitaries during the conflict in Northern Ireland. The IRA admitted killing 13 of the 16 classified as "disappeared" in the 1970s and 80s, mostly Catholics accused of collaborating with British forces, while the Irish National Liberation Army admitted one. No one has taken responsibility for the other two, or two more who went missing after 1998. Several of the bodies have never been found and, like for the vast majority of the victims of Northern Ireland's "Troubles", none of the crimes have been solved and the perpetrators remain unpunished. The families of the Disappeared are frustrated that Northern Ireland appears so reluctant to investigate its past.

The Ulster Banner hangs at a window on Shankill road in West Belfast 
The Ulster Banner hangs at a window on Shankill road in West Belfast August 18, 2014. It has become a symbol of Ulster loyalism. In Belfast, the flags of Israel and the Palestinians are potent symbols of conflict, but they divide Catholics and Protestants rather than Jews and Muslims. In the complex web of alliances that underpins Northern Ireland politics, the star of David has been adopted by pro-British Loyalists, mainly Protestants, many of whom sympathise with Israel's struggle against Islamic militants. Flying the green, black and red of flag of the Palestinian territories, meanwhile, is a sign of support for Catholic Irish Nationalism and their aspiration for a united Ireland against what many see as a British occupation. The flags are among dozens that have been adopted by the working class Catholic and Protestant areas that have for decades been at the focus of sectarian violence in Northern Ireland.

The Starry Plough flag is etched onto a gravestone near the Republican plot in Milltown cemetery, West Belfast August 18, 2014. The Starry Plough was originally used by the Irish Citizen Army, a socialist, Republican movement and in modern times has been adopted by various Republic Paramilitary groups. In Belfast, the flags of Israel and the Palestinians are potent symbols of conflict, but they divide Catholics and Protestants rather than Jews and Muslims.

A mural in the Bogside area of Derry commemorates the beginning of the struggle in Derry for democratic rights, February 21, 2013. Historically most of the hundreds of murals across Northern Ireland promoted either republican or loyalist political beliefs, often glorifying paramilitary groups such as the Irish Republican Army or the Ulster Volunteer Force, or commemorating people who lost their lives in paramilitary or military attacks. However, since the paramilitary ceasefires some of the paintings have become less sectarian, celebrating sporting successes and cultural achievements. Picture taken February 21, 2013.

Frankie Gallagher of the Ulster Defence Association (UDA) speaks during a news conference in Belfast, Northern Ireland January 6, 2010. The UDA, a major Northern Irish paramilitary organisation, has dumped all its weapons in front of independent witnesses, completing the disarming of main militant groups but still leaving dangerous dissident factions active. A 'loyalist' group, which wants Northern Ireland to remain part of the United Kingdom, the UDA declared last June that its armed struggle was over and on Wednesday said it had got rid of all its weapons.

A woman walks past an Irish Republican mural challenging the policing issue in Northern Ireland on the Falls Road in west Belfast in this April 28, 2003 file photo. Despite the repeated failure of Northern Ireland's politicians to agree on how the province should be governed, the local signs of normalisation are everywhere apparent with policemen increasingly patrolling on bike and on foot and community groups working to tone down provocative displays of allegiance to paramilitary groups.
