IRA 'lifer' ordered freed from an Ulster prison

The British government ordered the release of an Irish woman guerrilla serving life imprisonment for bombing attacks, but denied that its clemency was a gesture to persuade hunger striker Bobby Sands to call off his 53-day fast. Dolours Price, one of two sisters belonging to the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA) who were jailed in 1973, was being freed because she is seriously ill , the Northern ireland Office announced.

Meanwhile, in the eighth consecutive day of rioting, youths hurled acid bombs and stones at police and tr oops in Londonderry.
