In recent days Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams was taken into custody by Northern Ireland police for questioning in regard to the Irish Republican Army’s kidnapping and execution of Jean McConville, a widowed mother of 10, back in 1972.

Adams, longtime leader of the political arm of the IRA and a current member of the Irish parliament, has reportedly been implicated in the murder via interviews provided by former IRA colleagues in a oral history project sponsored by Boston College.
