Pipe bombers will not drag us back to past - Kelly
Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has said those responsible for a pipe bomb attack in north Belfast will not succeed in dragging society back to the past.
Mr Kelly said;
"This pipe bomb attack in the Oldpark area of north Belfast should be condemned by everyone in our community.
"There is no rationale or justification for such actions and the sooner those behind this incident realise that the better.
"Those responsible for this pipe bomb are attempting to drag us back to the past but they will not succeed.
"Thankfully no one was injured in this incident but it did bring considerable disruption to the area as a number of homes and businesses had to be evacuated.
"Whoever was behind this attack needs to realise that they do not have the support of the local community and they should stop these pointless actions immediately."
