Maginness: North Belfast Pipe Bomb could have killed
SDLP North Belfast MLA Alban Maginness has condemned those responsible for planting a viable device in the North Queen Street area of the city.
Mr Maginness said:
“Those behind this senseless attempt to inflict pain and misery have shown absolutely no regard for this community. They have forced residents from their homes and caused huge disruption for local commuters. And they have failed to advance their cause one inch.
“The people of this island, north and south, have overwhelmingly rejected violence. Peace has been endorsed and those who seek to bomb or maim their way to some political goal need to accept that.
“I would encourage anyone with any information to contact the police as soon as possible.”
