Kelly condemns attack on his home
Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has condemned an incident where explosive type devices were thrown at his home.
Gerry Kelly said:
“Two explosive type devices were thrown at my home last night.
“A car was seen slowing down and two devices were thrown out of the back passenger seat just before a loud explosion.
“I reported the incident to the police and a search of the area surrounding the house was searched.
“A section of the main road was blocked off while the search took place.
“The alert ended at 2am this morning.
“No devices were found but after studying CCTV footage it is believed that the device was two large fireworks.
“I condemn this attack which is the latest in a sinister pattern of attacks and threats against public representatives.
“This comes against repeated bomb threats and warnings at constituency offices.
“I and other Sinn Féin representatives will not be deterred by incidents like these.”
