Northern Ireland: Police extend detention of Gerry Adams

This was one of the darkest cases of 30 years of violence between Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland. McConville was abducted in front of her children because she was suspected of being a police informant.

In 1999, the IRA admitted that she had been executed and buried in secret. The body was recovered in 2003, on a beach in County Louth, in the Republic of Ireland. The investigation was reopened in March and shakes the Northern Ireland 16 years after the peace accords.

Gerry Adams presented himself voluntarily on Wednesday to give a statement, denying any knowledge or participation in the kidnapping of Jean McConville. Sinn Féin denounced political motivations in detention, a few weeks of local and European elections.
