Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams admitted yesterday that he had no desire to die - or kill - for Ireland.

He also admitted that his first sexual fumblings were with Protestant girls who lived near his Ballymurphy home in Belfast.

Mr Adams, 46, was interviewed by Professor Anthony Clare for a Scottish Television series to be broadcast on ITV. Prof Clare asked repeatedly how Mr Adams felt about the use of violence and he replied: "I think any sensible person must be both intellectually and emotionally against being involved or a player in violence."
