iPod and posh docking sound system inside. cell

MUSLIM fanatic sparked a jail security scare after her post was mistaken for a BOMB.

Roshonara Choudhry - serving life for attempting to murder MP Stephen Timms - triggered the alert after staff spotted wires inside a package addressed to her.

Bosses at Bronzefield jail in Ashford, Middlesex, ordered the prison into full-scale "command mode", fearing the parcel contained explosives.

But when cops arrived they found an iPod and posh docking sound system inside.

A source revealed: "Choudhry is a restricted status prisoner, meaning she is one of the most high-profile cons in Bronzefield.

Given her background it's hardly surprising that a suspicious package was treated as a credible threat."

Bronzefield is run by private security firm Calyx. A spokeswoman said X-ray machines had picked up the threat and sparked the alert.

But sources alleged the package had reached Choudhry's cell.

British-born Choudhry, 21, stabbed Labour MP Mr Timms twice in the stomach at his constituency surgery in East London last May.

She was convicted last November. The Old Bailey heard the 55-year-old married politician was on a hit-list of MPs who had voted in favour of the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

He survived and made a full recovery.
