Irish republican leader Gerry Adams, head of the Sinn Fein political party, was on Wednesday questioned over the murder of a woman in 1972, the party said in a statement. "Last month Gerry Adams said he was available to meet the PSNI (Police Service of Northern Ireland) about the Jean McConville case," said a statement on the party's website. McConville, a 37-year-old mother of 10, was snatched from her west Belfast flat and shot by republican paramilitaries, accused of passing information to the British army. In 1999 the IRA admitted her murder and her remains were found on a beach in County Louth four years later.
