Gerry Adams freed in Jean McConville murder inquiry

4 May 2014 Last updated at 22:35 BST

Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams has criticised the timing of his arrest over the murder of mother-of-10 Jean McConville.

Speaking after his release following four days of questioning, Mr Adams said there had been a "sustained and malicious" campaign alleging his involvement in the 1972 IRA killing.

A file on the case will be sent to the Public Prosecution Service in Northern Ireland.

Mrs McConville's son said the family's fight for justice would continue.

Chris Buckler reports from Belfast.
