The death of Francis Hughes at the age of 25 after a 59 day hunger strike in the H-Blocks of Long Kesh. Hughes was such an effective guerrilla fighter that British authorities at one stage named him as the most wanted man in the north of Ireland. His death comes a week after the the death of Bobby Sands on 5 May, the first to die in a republican campaign for political status.
