    Kennedy, 76, is the last surviving brother of former president John F Kennedy, who was assassinated on November 22, 1963.

     

    His brother Robert Kennedy was assassinated on June 5, 1968, as he was campaigning for the presidency.

      

    A fierce critic of George Bush, the current US president, Kennedy is a supporter of Barack Obama, who is running for the Democratic nomination to contest a presidential election in November.

      

    First elected to the senate in 1962, he is the second longest-serving senator after Robert Byrd of West Virginia.
