Twaddell Avenue attack condemned

29 August, 2007


Sinn Féin North Belfast Councillor Margaret McClenaghan has condemned the petrol bomb attack on a home in Twaddell Avenue.

Cllr McClenaghan said:

"This was a disgraceful attack and thankfully no-one was injured. But the fact remains that this attacked could have led to deaths, including the death of an 18 day old baby. Those who carried out this attack should recognise that this is the consequence of their actions.

"Sectarianism is a cancer that cuts across all of society. It thrives on tensions in interface areas.

"It is essential that we continue to work across and through these divisions and build upon the work of the community interface network. This requires political leadership on the ground and ongoing community dialogue to ensure that we make better progress in ending the tensions across these interfaces areas." ENDS
