Police in Northern Ireland arrested Sinn Fein party leader Gerry Adams on Wednesday, April 30, 2014, over his alleged involvement in the Irish Republican Army's 1972 abduction, killing and secret burial of McConville. On Friday, May 2, the senior Sinn Fein politician in Northern Ireland's unity government demanded Adams' immediate release, as police sought to extend his interrogation over McConville's murder.
