The discovery of a viable letter bomb at the Royal Mail sorting office in Mallusk on July 11 has been condemned by SDLP Councillor Noreen McClelland.
Cllr McClelland said that those behind the letter bomb were ‘reckless thugs who put countless lives in danger’.
She added: “This was a cruel, callous act that could have left people injured or dead. Those behind it have no regard for the lives of anyone caught up in their attempts to maim and kill others.
“The office had to be evacuated while Army Technical Officers made the viable device safe. I would ask anyone who may have any information about this reckless act to contact the PSNI as soon as possible to help bring these thugs to justice.”
The device was taken away for examination.
