Strabane pipe bomb a futile act

1 July, 2011

Strabane Sinn Féin Councillor Jay Mc Cauley says has described the failed pipe bomb attack on Strabane PSNI station last night as a futile act.

He said,

“Throwing a pipe bomb at a fortified PSNI station is a totally futile act.  The only affect of this act was to cause endangerment and disruption to the local community especially given the fact that it ended up so close to the local play park.

“Rather than putting their energies into causing disruption for the local community those involved should recognise the absolute futility of their actions and join with the overwhelming majority of people in this area who are trying to forge a better future for this community and in turn to adopt a constructive strategy towards achieving the objectives Irish republicanism.” ENDS
