IRA disarmament details could salvage agreement
BELFAST, Northern Ireland -- The Irish Republican Army should disclose the full details of its latest act of disarmament for the good of Northern Ireland's stalled peace process, the prime ministers of Britain and Ireland said Wednesday.
A day after the IRA handed over an undisclosed amount of weaponry to disarmament chiefs, the premiers said the main objective of the exercise -- to persuade Protestant voters to back renewed power-sharing with the IRA-linked Sinn Fein party in a Nov. 26 election -- had failed.
"People would be satisfied if they knew the full details," British Prime Minister Tony Blair told lawmakers in London.
