  1. Police Question Sinn Fein Leader Over Widow’s Murder

    Gerry Adams has been arrested and is being questioned about the 1972 abduction and murder of a 37-year-old widowed mother of 10. Jean McConville’s body wasn’t found until 2003, and Adams denies playing any part in the crime, referring to her murder as a “grievous injustice.” McConville, one of Northern Ireland’s Disappeared, was kidnapped in front of her children after being wrongly accused of being an informer by the Irish Republican Army. Several people have been arrested in recent weeks over the murder, including a former 1970s leader in the Provisional IRA.
