4 August, 2016 - by Paul Maskey

Sinn Féin MP Paul Maskey has condemned an attack on a bus carrying a Chinese family along the Falls Road yesterday.

The West Belfast MP said:

“I condemn this attack outright. Someone could have been seriously injured as a result of this reckless attack.

“Thousands of people are set to visit West Belfast for Féile an Phobail events over the course of the next ten days.

“Hundreds visit the murals and interface walls every day and they leave with a positive experience of this part of the city.

“It is unfortunate this family who were touring the city have had suffered the shock of being attacked like this and thankfully none of them was injured.

“I have been in touch with the bus company and have asked them to pass my contact details to the family so I can offer my support.”
