McConville's son 'wants justice' as police quiz Adams

A son of the Belfast mother-of-10 murdered in 1972 has said he wants justice as police question Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams about her death.

Jean McConville's son Michael, who was 11 when his mother was killed, told Radio 4's Today programme: "We're just happy to see everything moving as it is moving at the minute.

"Me and the rest of my brothers and sisters are just glad to see the PSNI [Police Service of Northern Ireland] doing their job. We didn't think it [Mr Adams' arrest] would ever take place, but we are quite glad that it is taking place.

"All we're looking for is justice for our mother. Our mother, on the seventh of next month, would have been 80 years of age."
