SF man arrested

Sinn Fein Youth National Organiser Eoin O'broin was arrested at Birmingham Airport on Monday at the start of a speaking tour of English cities. He was held for an hour and a half before being released without charge.

The West Midlands police later issued a statement saying the arrest was ``routine in the circumstances''.

Organiser of the tour Mary Pearson, Chair of the Troops Out Movement, said, ``It is absolutely outrageous that in the circumstances of the peace process a Sinn Féin representative can be arrested for simply wantinmg to have dialogue with the youth of Britain''.
