Sinn Féin slams petrol bomb attack on Brookfield Mill

18 July, 2005


Sinn  Fein Councillor for North Belfast Margaret McClenaghan has slammed the
petrol bomb attack on Brookfield Mill. The attack which occured at 11:30pm
on Sunday night follows a day of sustained attacks against nationalist homes
on Alliance Avenue.

Speaking after the attack Cllr McClenaghan said:

"These attacks cannot be justified in any sense. They were sectarian and
only carried out to inflict damage and destruction.

"Tonights attacks come after a day of sustained attacks on nationalist homes
in Alliance Avenue in which the PSNI were present but nothing to stop. In
the attack against the Mill there were at least ten petrol bombs thrown
across the Crumlin Raod at the Mill. This was not only dangerous to the
property but could very easily have hit passing motorists.

"These attacks are now spreading and it needs to be addressed before
somebody is seriously injured or killed. I am calling once again for
Unionist representatives to play a leadership role and do all in their power
to end these attacks." ENDS
