Video game of Kennedy assassination 'despicable'
Text size Aa Aa

Its makers say they are trying to disprove the conspiracy theories. The Kennedy family has branded it despicable. Now, thanks to a new video game you can match your marksmanship against that of the man said to have carried out what is arguably the most famous assassination ever – that of President John F Kennedy of the United States.

The Scottish firm behind JFK Reloaded says its recreation of the killing of the president should prove Lee Harvey Oswald did actually pull the trigger. And the cash prize it is offering sharp-shooting players is just part of their way of interesting people in history. The President was shot dead in Dallas in 1963. Oswald, his presumed assassin was himself gunned down before he could stand trial.
