Kelly slams those behind Newtonabbey pipebomb

6 June, 2011


Commenting after a viable pipe bomb was left at the Homebase store in Newtonabbey, Sinn Féin MLA for north Belfast Gerry Kelly has condemned those responsible.

Speaking today Mr Kelly said;


“The leaving of this device will achieve absolutely nothing. Whoever is behind it should realise that the only thing they have done is put the lives of the workers and customers of this store at serious risk.


“It is without doubt a reckless and pointless exercise. I call on those behind it to try to explain their rationale for this attack to the community. Local people can see no logic or reason behind this action.


“Those responsible offer our community nothing other than to cause disruption and create the potential for someone to lose their lives.”
