O'Neill condemns arson attack on Sinn Féin election agent's car
Sinn Féin's Michelle O'Neill has condemned an arson attack on the car of a Sinn Féin election agent in north Down.
Michelle O'Neill said;
"I absolutely condemn tonight's arson attack by masked men on the car of a Sinn Féin election agent in Bangor.
"This is an attack on the democratic process but it will not deter the local candidate or anyone else in Sinn Féin.
"There are clearly those who are intent on turning this into a brutal campaign and sectarianising the election.
"I am calling on all party leaders to condemn this attack on democracy and send a clear message to those responsible that this will not be tolerated.
"Despite this and other attacks, Sinn Féin will continue to stand for equality and respect and integrity in the institutions."
