Britain orders senior IRA die-hard back to prison

Britain orders senior IRA die-hard back to prison

Britain has ordered a senior supporter of IRA splinter groups to be sent back to prison in Northern Ireland because of her alleged links to dissident threats against Queen Elizabeth II.
Northern Ireland police arrested 57-year-old Marian Price outside a Londonderry courthouse after she received bail Monday. She had been arraigned on a charge of encouraging terrorism.
Britain's secretary of state for Northern Ireland, Owen Paterson, said he ordered Price back to prison because she posed a potential threat to the queen.
Typically, IRA and other paramilitary convicts in Northern Ireland have been paroled early from their sentences on condition they do not become involved again in extremism.
Price was convicted over the IRA's first car-bomb attacks in London in 1973.
