Pregnant terrorist suspect Roisin McAliskey was under police guard in hospital last night after being freed on bail from Holloway prison to have her baby.

Ms McAliskey, 25, who is fighting extradition to Germany for questioning over the IRA bombing of British Army barracks in Osnabruck, is understood to be suffering from asthma and other complications caused by an eating disorder. The baby was due last Wednesday. She has always denied her involvement in the terrorist attack, in which no one was injured. Steve Boggan
