An application for bail by Roisin McAliskey, who is suspected of being involved in IRA terrorist activities, was yesterday adjourned until Friday. Ms McAliskey, 25, the daughter of the former Ulster MP Bernadette Devlin, is being held in Holloway prison in north London as a Category A prisoner and has been warned that she may not be allowed to keep her baby when it is born in two months' time. Her continued detention has enraged human rights activists.

Ms McAliskey is being held in jail pending extradition to Germany, where she is wanted in connection with the attempted mortar attack on a British Army base in Osnabruck last year. She denies any involvement and has not so far been charged with any offence. Steve Boggan
