Over in Northern Ireland, Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams was released from police custody on Sunday, days after being arrested for questioning in the 1972 murder of Jean McConville. It’s unlikely that he’ll be charged with anything, analysts say, but it’s still possible, as investigators handed over their evidence to prosecutors. Above, via the BBC, is a photo of the scene outside of the Antrim police station where Adams was held before being released.

Well publicised, malicious allegations have been made against me. I reject these.
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams • Denying any role in the 1972 abduction and murder of Jean McConville, a mother of 10 abducted and killed by members of the Provisional Irish Republican Army during the early years of The Troubles, a conflict over the British control of Northern Ireland. Adams, a key figure in the conflict, has become a respected politician in recent years, having played a role in the 1998 peace agreement that largely ended the conflict. He was arrested Wednesday in relation to the cold case, though he denies any role in McConville’s death.

Queen Elizabeth finally visits Ireland, because really, why not?: It’s the first visit by a reigning British monarch since Ireland first went independent in 1922. There have been two bomb threats already. She’s 85 — might as well get this visit in now. source Follow ShortFormBlog
