Kelly condemns attempted murder of police officer

Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has condemned an attempted bomb attack on a young female police officer near Dungiven. 

Gerry Kelly said: 

“The discovery of a device under the car of a young female police officer near Dungiven is disgraceful and I condemn it utterly. 

“Thankfully she wasn’t hurt but we could have been facing a very different scenario. 

“This could have seriously injured or killed this young woman or anyone in the nearby area. 

“At a time of increased community tensions this is the last thing that anyone wants to see. 

“Those behind this reckless attack have absolutely nothing to offer society but more suffering and they have shown a callous disregard for the entire community. 

“They need to bring their futile actions to an end.

“I appeal for anyone with information on this attack to report it to the police.”
