Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has expressed his regret at the death of Coretta Scott King, the wife of Martin Lurther King who died earlier today in Atlanta.

Mr Adams said:

"Coretta Scott King was a dedicated champion of civil rights for over 40 years. She was part of a movement along with her late husband who inspired civil rights activists across the world including here in Ireland.

"After her husbands death she carried on the campaign for equality and justice right up until her passing earlier today in Atlanta.

"Our sympathies are with her family and many friends at this time." ENDS
