Adams appeals for ``calm and restraint''

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams has appealed for ``cool heads, calm and restraint in the difficult days ahead''.

Mr. Adams said:

``There is a responsibility upon everyone in leadership to use their influence to calm the situation at this difficult time.

``There is especially an onus on John Major and Patrick Mayhew and on Unionist leaders.

``On my part I appeal for a disciplined, calm and restrained approach from Republicans and Nationalists''
