Harney backs DUP on photos…

TANAISTE Mary Harney (PD) has backed the DUP’s position on a photograph of IRA decommissioning – perhaps because the Irish Government feels it has endured a high degree of pain and ‘humiliation’ over Sinn Fein’s insistence on Garda McCabe killers’ release.

The full text of Gerry Adams statement yesterday saying the IRA would not be humiliated is here.
