Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has expressed her condolences following the death of former civil rights leader Ivan Cooper. 

The Foyle MP said: 

"Ivan Cooper, along with others, played an important role in the Civil Rights campaign in the late 1960s and early 1970s. 

"He stood up with others and challenged an unjust and unfair system of apartheid and discrimination. 

"My thoughts and sympathies are with his family and friends at this time."
