Loyalists blamed for attempted murder of man in North Belfast

15 December, 2003

Sinn Féin representative for North Belfast Gerry Kelly has blamed loyalists for a murder bid on a man outside the Boundary Bar in Bawnmore last night.

Mr. Kelly said:

" Last night a young man who was leaving the Boundary Bar in Bawnmore was attacked by four loyalists wielding hammers. He suffered serious head injuries and he is lucky to be alive. This was not an assault it was a sectarian murder bid carried out by loyalists.

" I am calling on unionist politicians to speak out against this sort of random sectarian attack and work with the representatives of the nationalist community in North Belfast to ensure that this type of sectarian activity is ended." ENDS
