The World

Condemnation of the outlawed Irish Republican Army is expected to be heard today in many Roman Catholic churches as the Irish government clears the way for an anti-terrorist extradition act. In the wake of last week's IRA bomb that killed 11 people attending a war memorial service in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland, the Irish government has abandoned its resistance to the extradition law, according to official sources. The law would remove anomalies in which Irish nationalist rebels have argued that their crimes are politically motivated. In a statement to be read at Sunday Mass, Ireland's Roman Catholic bishops condemned the violence.
