Farry condemns shooting of three police officers

Alliance Justice Spokesperson Stephen Farry MLA has condemned the shooting of three police officers on Sunday night on North Queen Street. Petrol Bombs were also thrown at police in the Broadway area of West Belfast on Sunday night.

Stephen Farry MLA said: “We could easily be talking this morning about the murder of three police officers. The whole community will want to stress their solidarity to those who are working on the frontline to keep this society safe.

“It was inevitable that dissident Republicans would seek to exploit this summer. It is important that political and community leaders unite to frustrate them.

“Riots are not in the interest of anyone, neither the local communities directly affected nor the image of Northern Ireland.

“I hope all the officers who sustained injuries during the trouble make speedy recoveries.

“I would urge anybody with any information about these incidents to contact the police.”
