*H.-K. Xu* and

*R. G. Ori* introduced an implicit iteration process for a finite family of nonexpansive mapping and proved the weak convergence of this process to a common fixed point of a finite family of nonexpansive maps in a Hilbert space. They posed the question: What assumptions would have to be made on the finite family of nonexpansive mappings and/or their parameters

$\left\{{\alpha}_{n}\right\}$ to guarantee the strong convergence of the sequence

$\left\{{x}_{n}\right\}$ generated by their implicit iteration process? The authors prove the strong convergence of the sequence

$\left\{{x}_{n}\right\}$ in a much more general uniformly convex Banach space under the condition that one member of the finite family of nonexpansive mappings is semi-compact or any one of the contractive assumptions of Proposition 3.4 of their paper holds.
