Anna Lo MLA said: “I am outraged at those behind these devices, it is the latest in a series of security threats in South Belfast in recent months. There can never any justification for the use of violence. Nobody wants to return to the dark days of the Troubles.
“The people behind these pipe bombs have obviously no respect for the lives of the local community. The fact that a nursery school had to be evacuated makes this incident even more sickening
“I would urge anybody with any information about this incident to contact the police. These people must be taken off our streets and given severe punishments by the courts for their actions.”
