Sinn Féin MP condemns petrol bomb incident

24 March, 2007

Sinn Féin MP for Newry and Armagh Conor Murphy has condemned those involved
in throwing petrol bombs at the heavily fortified PSNI base in Crossmaglen
last night saying that they had nothing to offer the local community.

Mr Murphy said:

"It is difficult to work out exactly what motivated those who threw a number
of petrol bombs at the heavily fortified barracks in Crossmaglen overnight.
Some local people have reported that those involved were drunk. What I can
clearly say is that it was in no way connected to Republicans.

"I would appeal to those involved in this type of pointless activity to wise
up and to reflect upon the damage that this type of activity does to the
reputation of the local community here in Crossmaglen." ENDS
