North Belfast bomb hoaxes

27 November, 2008 - by Gerry Kelly


Sinn Féin North Belfast MLA Gerry Kelly has condemned bomb hoaxes at two homes of members of a North Belfast family earlier today.

Commenting after bomb hoaxes at two homes of members of a North Belfast family earlier today, Thursday 27 November, Sinn Féin MLA for the constituency Gerry Kelly said:

"These hoax bomb incidents caused great distress to the families targeted, including a number of vulnerable young children, and neighbours caught up in the disruption which followed.

"There is no support within the community for these threats and Sinn Féin demands that they are withdrawn immediately.

"These latest incidents come hot on the heels of threats issued to community workers earlier this week and bomb alerts at homes in the New Lodge area yesterday.

"I am calling for an end to all these campaigns of intimidation." ENDS
