LONDON, Feb 25 (Reuters) - Britain's most senior Roman Catholic cleric, Cardinal Keith O'Brien, said he would not be attending the conclave at the Vatican to choose a successor to Pope Benedict after announcing he was resigning as an archbishop.

"I will not join them (the other cardinals) for this conclave in person. I do not wish media attention in Rome to be focussed on me - but rather on Pope Benedict XVI and on his successor," he said in a statement. (Reporting by Michael Holden Editing by Maria Golovnina)
