IRA burials 'a huge mistake'

Sinn Fein president has described the IRA practice of killing and burying its victims in secret locations as a "huge mistake", but refused to accept it was a war crime.

Speaking on RTE's Prime Time, Mr Adams said: "I know it was a huge mistake by the IRA and a particularly sad phase of the conflict. It is one of the unresolved, uncorrected injustices done by republicans."
