McCann slams those behind Twinbrook pipe bomb attack

6 June, 2012 - by Jennifer McCann


Sinn Féin MLA for West Belfast Jennifer McCann has slammed those who endangered residents and members of the PSNI in a pipe bomb attack at Whin Park late last night.

Speaking today Ms McCann said:

“Those behind this attack have once again shown their utter disregard for this community. Whoever threw that device endangered the lives of local residents and members of the PSNI.

“The damage to residents cars shows that we are lucky today not to be dealing with serious injuries or someone being killed.

“Our representatives have been working with local residents from just after the attack late last night and one thing is very clear, there is absolutely no support for these attacks or these dissident groups in this area.

“This community does not want to see such attacks carried out in its name and it is high time those behind them stopped.”
