MP condemns ‘senseless’ attack

NORTH Belfast MP Nigel Dodds has condemned those responsible for a blast bomb attack in the White City area at the weekend that left a 44-year-old woman with leg injuries.

The woman answered a call to her house on Thorburn Road at around 10pm on Sunday (February 24) when the device exploded. She was taken to hospital where she was treated for wounds to her legs.

Two family pets were badly injured in the blast, which was heard over a mile away.

The woman’s husband and teenage daughter were inside the house at the time. Both were unhurt, but left badly shaken by the incident.

“Clearly this was an entirely reckless attack which could have resulted in very serious injuries or even death,” Mr Dodds commented.

“I condemn this senseless attack completely and without reservation. I appeal for anyone with information which could help bring the perpetrators to justice to pass it on to the police without delay,” the DUP man added.

Investigating officers have appealed for anyone with information about the attack to contact them on 0845 600 8000.
