McCallion calls for united response to Derry violence
Foyle MP Elisha McCallion is convening an emergency meeting today in response to a recent spate of gun and bombs attacks in the Waterside area of Derry.
"The recent attacks are greatly concerning and clearly there are ongoing tensions in the area," she commented.
"I believe an urgent approach involving all the relevant agencies and community representatives is required in order to address this issue before someone is seriously injured or even killed.
"I have called today's meeting in order to ensure all the relevant stakeholders are taking a co-ordinated approach aimed at defusing this situation.
"There can be no place for gun and bomb attacks in our city and I would urge all political and community leaders to use their influence to bring it to an end."
