The extradition application by the German government against 25-year-old Roisin McAliskey was adjourned until 8 July by Bow Street stipendiary magistrate Lorraine Morgan yesterday, after Ms McAliskey's solicitor, Gareth Peirce, told the court her client was unable to attend through illness. Mrs Morgan extended Ms McAliskey's conditional bail until that date.

Ms Peirce told the court that the prognosis on Ms McAliskey was "completely unclear". Under the terms of her bail, Ms McAliskey, who gave birth to a baby daughter a fortnight ago, has been allowed to stay in an unnamed mother and baby unit rather than be returned to Holloway prison. She is wanted for questioning in Germany about the IRA bombing of the Osnabruck military base in June last year. Patricia Wynn Davies
