Sinn Féin MLA for North Belfast Gerry Kelly has slammed those responsible for the leaving of a bomb in a car which was discovered in Ligoniel.
Speaking today Mr Kelly said:
“This attack was wreckless and those who behind need to bear the responsibility of endangering the people of North Belfast.
“It is my understanding that this car traveled around north Belfast, and was in Ligoniel before this bomb was discovered. It has left this community vulnerable to injury or worse had the bomb gone off.
“In Ligoniel itself many people, including families with children were forced to leave their homes.
“Those behind it need to realise that there is no support for this and the community rejects the groups behind such attacks. Their actions are outdated and will serve no furthering of any political agenda or otherwise. The people of Ireland had overwhelming endorsed the peace process and it is high time such groups caught up with this.”
