Huge concern after County Tyrone Petrol bomb attack

17 February, 2008

Sinn Féin Fermanagh South Tyrone MP Michelle Gildernew has expressed huge concern after a 19-year-old was left fighting for his life after a petrol bomb attack on a house in Caledon, County Tyrone on Saturday night.

Ms Gildernew said:

"This was a dreadful attack. A young man is now fighting for his life.

"Having spoken to local people I know that this attack has caused grave concern.

"While the exact details are unclear no-one should think that this is the way to deal with any issues within the village.

"There is a challenge for the PSNI to work constructively with the local community to ensure that this type of attack never happens again." ENDS
