Alliance Justice spokesperson Trevor Lunn has congratulated the police on the discovery of pipe bombs in Belfast.
Trevor Lunn said: “This discovery of five pipe bombs and ammunition in west Belfast was part of an ongoing PSNI investigation into criminal and terrorist groups. I congratulate the police on this success, which has potentially saved lives by removing these weapons from the hands of terrorists.
“Pipe bombs used in residential areas do not discriminate in who is injured or killed. They also put at risk people living in houses adjacent to where they were stored as they can be unstable.
“Public support for the police can help remove these deadly devices from the community. Anyone with information about these items, or about criminality, should pass it to the police on the 101 number or to the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.”
