McCann slams West Belfast arson attack

8 January, 2012 - by Jennifer McCann

West Belfast Sinn Féin MLA Jennifer McCann has condemned those responsible for an arson attack on a home of a family in Poleglass.Speaking today Ms McCann said:
  "This was a cowardly attack which clearly set out to murder  a mother and her young child in their home.  A number of men poured flamable liquid through the family's letter box and set it on fire.  Only the quick actions of neighbours to put out the fire saved this family being burned to death.  "This incident was attempted murder as those responsible clearly set out to kill the occupants of this house. Anyone who could sit down and plot to burn a young child of just 7 years old to death in her bed are clearly very dangerous and need to be apprehended."I would appeal for anyone that has any information in relation to this incident to please contact the PSNI."
