Cllr Nuala McAllister said: “Those behind this pipe bomb attack have no regard for the consequences of their actions. Not only are they recklessly endangering those they targeted, but also the entire community. There is no excuse for this type of behaviour anywhere in Belfast.
“This attack resulted in many families being forced to leave their homes in the middle of the night. Thankfully, following police action, the situation was brought under control.
“The Police will need the help of the public to apprehend those responsible, so I would urge anybody with any information about this attack to contact the Police.”
