Lunn hits out at those behind Strabane alert

Alliance Justice spokesperson Trevor Lunn MLA has hit out at those behind a device in Strabane, after PSNI confirmed it was an attempt to kill officers.

The device exploded while officers were on patrol in the Co Tyrone town around 8.30pm yesterday (Tuesday).

“This appears to have been a deliberate attempt to kill police,” said Mr Lunn.

“This type of attack achieves nothing except putting police officers, who are trying to protect the local community, in danger and diverting vital resources from other areas that might need them.

“There is no justification for this attack. Any act of violence against police is an assault on the rule of law and everyone in our society.

“I urge anyone with information to contact police with it immediately.”
