Maskey condemns west Belfast attacks

21 January, 2010

Sinn Féin MLA for west Belfast Paul Maskey has condemned two attacks in the Suffolk and Ballymurphy areas last night.

Speaking today Mr Maskey said;

“Obviously these attacks cause a great deal of concern amongst the community in west Belfast, particularly given the fact that in one instance a number of young children were witness to the shooting but this also indicates the intention of some people to steal guns and introduce them onto our streets.

At this stage my understanding is the PSNI have arrested a number of individuals in relation to the attacks.

My thoughts are with the families subjected to what was without doubt a deeply traumatic and stressful experience for them.” CRÍOCH
