Gerry Adams extends sympathy to family and friends of Simon Cumbers

7 June, 2004


Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP speaking from Galway this morning extended his sympathies to the family and friends of Simon Cumbers who was killed in Saudi Arabia yesterday.

Mr. Adams said:

"I want to extend my sympathies to the family and friends of Simon Cumbers who was killed in Riyadh yesterday. Simon was well known to those involved in the peace process over the last ten years and I recently spoke with him in London when he covered a press conference organised by families of people killed as a result of colllusion. Simon was a well respected journalist and will be missed by all those who knew him."ENDS
