    Default Can someone do me a favor?(Better British or Irish)

    I am doing dictations of BBC news to improve my listeninig skills.
    But now I have trouble understanding what she's talking about when in today's program an Irish woman comments about her brother's death, which was suspiciously to be in connection with members of the IRA.
    The audio is right here, on the URL below.

    The comments comes somewhere about at the 4:00 point of the audio

    Can someone write down the script of what her talk, please?
    Thank u all.

    I couldn't get the part left blank below:

    We're very pleased that uhm today's developments and _________ take place obviously. And this isn't over, you know, so we hope this is the beginning of the end of the campaign. We certainly do have the support of people on the ground, and obviously continue to have the support of those people met, we met in America. And just a few weeks ago, the European Parliament also gave us their support. So, support is very much still there.
