16 December, 2008 - by Alex Maskey

South Belfast Sinn Féin MLA Alex Maskey has hit out at those responsible for attacking a man in his South Belfast home last night. The attack took place in the man's Newtownbreda Road home and the family have said that they believe that the attack was sectarian.

Alex Maskey MLA said,
"Any violent attack of this type is extremely worrying and can have no place in our society. What makes this particular attack all the more alarming is the belief that this attack was sectarian and the fact that one of the men who participated in the attack is believed to have been armed with a handgun.

"This type of attack has no place in our community and I would call upon anybody with information about this incident to contact the PSNI".
