Gerry Adams removed from US terror watch list

"This matter is not closed. I will persist until Sinn Féin staff, those who have become instrumental in the movement toward peace and the implementation of the Good Friday Accords, are removed as well," Higgins said.

Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams has been removed from the federal government’s terrorist watch list, a New York congressman said yesterday.

Adams was delayed for security reasons at a Washington airport on St. Patrick’s Day on his way to Buffalo. Hours earlier, he had been a guest of President George Bush in the White House.

Buffalo congressman Brian Higgins, a Democrat, and other lawmakers complained to Transportation Security Administration officials.

Higgins said that during a private meeting with TSA officials yesterday, they informed him Adams had been removed from the list.

The lawmaker said it remains unclear which federal agency had "nominated" Adams for placement on the list, but he is determined to find out.
