A republican suspected of murdering 29 people in the Omagh bombing will make a second bid for bail this week.

Seamus Daly is charged with being one of those behind the 1998 Real IRA atrocity, the worst single incident of the Troubles.

The 43-year-old, originally from Culloville in Co Monaghan but now living in Newry, also faces two charges related to the Omagh explosion and two charges linked to an attempted explosion in Lisburn in April 1998.

Daly was arrested by police on Monday of last week in the car park of a hospital he was attending with his heavily pregnant wife.

He appeared before Dungannn Magistrates Court last Friday, the day his child was due to be born. He was remanded into custody and will challenge the decision to deny him bail at the High Court in Belfast tomorrow.
