Kelly condemns second north Belfast bomb alert
Sinn Féin MLA for north Belfast Gerry Kelly has condemned those responsible for both of today’s bomb scares in his constituency.
Speaking this evening he said;
“This morning’s alert was caused by a viable device being left on the window sil of a house in Stratheden Street in the New Lodge and this evening’s alert was caused by a device left in a communal corridor in a communal block of flats at Cavehill Road.
On both occasions these devices were found by members of the public. In both instances there were no warnings given despite these being viable devices.
The reality we are dealing with is that people in our community could have lost their lives as a result of these reckless actions.
I condemn it outright and people in north Belfast reject those responsible totally.
The people carrying out these mindless actions need to stop now before someone is killed.” CRÍOCH
