Sinn Fein chief held over notorious '72 IRA murder

ANTRIM, United Kingdom -- Northern Ireland police on Thursday questioned Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams, a chief negotiator in the Irish peace process, over the notorious IRA murder of a woman suspected of being an informant in 1972.

The 65-year-old republican leader was arrested on Wednesday night over the killing of mother-of-ten Jean McConville after voluntarily attending a police station in Antrim, Northern Ireland, for an interview.

Adams strongly rejected any involvement in the murder — one of the most infamous incidents in Northern Ireland's violent history — saying in a statement that the allegations were "malicious."

"While I have never disassociated myself from the IRA and I never will, I am innocent of any part in the abduction, killing or burial of Mrs. McConville," he said.
