Magee condemns Belfast stabbings
Sinn Féin Councillor JJ Magee said the community is shocked following the stabbing of two men in the city last night.
Cllr Magee said:
"A 20 year-old man stabbed in the Britton's Parade area last night is in a serious condition in hospital. It is my hope that he makes a full recovery from his injuries.
"This attack followed a separate incident in North Belfast were a man was also attacked by a knife.
"I unreservedly condemn both attacks.
"Knives kill and using them as a weapon to attack someone often results in death or life-changing injuries, which has a wide-reaching impact on victims, their families and the wider community.
"I would appeal to anyone who has any information about either attack to contact the PSNI.”
