Kelly condemns those behind North Belfast bomb

23 April, 2017 - by Gerry Kelly


Sinn Féin MLA for North Belfast Gerry Kelly has condemned those behind the leaving of a viable device in Ardoyne last night.

Speaking to day Mr Kelly said:

“This was a viable device left in a built up residential area which was designed to kill. I condemn it outright.

“Those behind it have no regard whatsoever for this community and they need to end these futile acts.  

“This was left at the gate of a school, yards from peoples homes on a busy walkway. Anyone could have  been passed this bomb.

“Twenty homes also had to be evacuated overnight including family homes.

“I welcome the fact that this device was found before it killed or injured somebody and anyone with information should bring it to the PSNI.”
