Maghera bomb blast

16 November, 2004

Mid Ulster MP Martin McGuinness has described last nights bomb attack on a home outside Maghera as 'a deplorable attack on a mother and her children'.

Mr McGuinness said:

" Last night at around 11.30pm a bomb was left outside the home of a mother and her young family. It was fortunate that nobody in the house was injured in the blast. This was a deplorable attack.

" Having spoken with local people this morning there is a belief that this incident may be in some way linked to one of the loyalist paramilitary gangs which operate in that particular area. I am satisfied that there is no republican involvement in this incident whatsoever." ENDS
