An Irishman wanted by police in Germany in connection with an IRA bomb attack in 1989, is to fight extradition from Spain.

Leonard Hardy, 44, from Co Antrim, told the National Criminal Court in Madrid that he will resist Germany's legal attempts to have him extradited.

He is wanted by German police, who suspect him of involvement in a bomb attack at a British army base in Osnabruck.

Hardy has been ordered to the maximum security prison at Valdemora, just outside the Spanish capital, to await a full extradition hearing.
