PFNI condemns ‘entirely reckless act’

The Police Federation for Northern Ireland has condemned those responsible for a viable device recovered in the Ardoyne area of north Belfast.

PFNI Chairman, Mark Lindsay, said: “The people who did this wanted to murder or maim officers. They didn’t care if passers-by or children out playing in the area were caught up in an explosion. It was an entirely reckless act.

“This appears to have been a deadly, anti-personnel-type weapon. Thankfully, it was recovered and removed without being detonated. The attackers are terrorising people who live in the area and preventing them from getting on with their everyday lives.

“I would echo the appeal that has been made for help in finding the culprits and bringing them before the Courts.

“The local community, indeed Northern Ireland as a whole, want to be rid of these terrorists who are holding back communities and creating misery for the many.”
