Gerry Adams arrest: Sinn Féin holds rally in support

Sinn Féin has held a rally in Belfast in support of their leader Gerry Adams who has spent a third night in police custody in connection with the 1972 murder of Jean McConville.

Police in Northern Ireland have until 20:00 BST on Sunday to either charge or release him, after a judge granted them a 48-hour extension on Friday.

Mr Adams, 65, denies he was involved in the widow's abduction and murder.

Nick Higham reports.
