Irish politician and Nobel Peace Prize winner John Hume has died at the age of 84 in Londonderry. This was reported by SkyNews TV channel with reference to the deceased's family.
Hume was born on 18 January 1937 in Northern Ireland. He led the country's social democratic and labor parties (SDLP) from 1979 to 2000. SDLP representatives expressed their condolences over the death of their former leader.
вЂњWe all live in Ireland that he imagined it to be: peaceful and having the right to choose their own fate. Thank you, John, вЂњ the party said on Twitter.
Fellow citizens in a poll in 2010 called Hume вЂњthe greatest IrishmanвЂќ.
