Hendron condemns East Belfast petrol bomb attack

Alliance Belfast Councillor Maire Hendron has condemned the petrol bomb attack on a house at 3am on Elgin Street in the Annadale area. A teenage boy suffered burns to his hand and another suffered smoke inhalation.

Cllr Maire Hendron said: “This attack is completely disgraceful. Throwing petrol bombs at houses achieves nothing.

“I hope the people injured in the attack make a swift recovery.

“The police must step up patrols in this area as this attack happened a few hours after a burglary of an 82 year old’s house in the same area.

“We must not allow people to be able to get away with attacks such as this and I would urge anybody with any information about this attack to contact the police.”
