'Muggers hit mother-to-be'

TWO youths have been granted bail after they were charged with violently mugging a heavily pregnant woman in Dublin.

The mum-to-be, who is seven months pregnant, was near her home and had been at Collins Park in north Dublin when the alleged robbery took place. The boys, aged 16 and 17, were brought before Dublin Children's Court on Monday.

They made no reply when charged with robbery, the city's juvenile court was told.

Their next hearing will take place on March 5.
