McLaughlin condemns Rathenraw gun attack

15 April, 2007

Sinn Féin South Antrim MLA, Mitchel McLaughlin has condemned the gun attack on a house in the Rathenraw housing estate.

Mitchel McLaughlin said:

"I unreservedly condemn this attack whatever the motivation of those involved. Shooting into a home from a car recklessly endangered not only the occupants but the entire local community.

"Sinn Féin has been actively working with local community groups to build a sustainable community in Rathenraw and this activity adds nothing to the lives of that community. Those responsible for this attack have nothing to offer the people of Rathenraw.

"I call on those involved to think carefully about their actions and the potential repercussions and to immediately end this reckless activity." ENDS
