Alliance condemns Lurgan blast bomb attack

Alliance Chief Whip Kieran McCarthy MLA has expressed revulsion at an attack which saw blast bombs and petrol bombs being thrown at police in Lurgan. The attack took place in the Lake Street area of the town in the early hours of the morning and six police officers suffered minor injuries.

Kieran McCarthy MLA said: “This type of activity has no place in our society. We are moving forward to a brighter, peaceful, shared future and we will not let a small number of individuals cause disruption and create fear.
