Building on peace efforts over the last 10 years, Northern Ireland’s arch foes have finally agreed to a power-sharing executive governing body for the province. "Mr Paisley, leader of the Protestant faction, and Mr Adams of the mainly Catholic Sinn Fein, are committed to full participation and said the day dawned a "new era." UK Prime Minister Tony Blair said it was a very important day for the people of Northern Ireland." (BBC)
